Featured Tip: Water Meditation

Nude in the Bathtub by Pierre Bonnard

Today I just want to take a moment to share an idea with you that I just heard about from my friend Brooke. Because she has serious chronic pain, Brooke has an "unconventional" meditation practice, which she does in her bathtub. She has found that when she's immersed in water, it's the only time she doesn't feel her chronic pain. So practicing meditation in the tub at night has been very beneficial for her. Combining this with a more conventional sitting practice a few days a week allowed her to establish a regular meditation practice, which was one of her goals for 2018.

Of course, because it is important not to fall asleep in a bathtub, you should take precautions to stay awake. For example, you could use a meditation timer that goes off at set intervals. 

Thanks, Brooke, for this wonderful tip. I hope some of you out there will find this helpful.
