Does sitting in bed thinking count as a form of meditation? It’s not really meditation if you’re “thinking” for some value of “thinking”. You can definitely meditate in bed, but you need to be attentively “not thinking.” You can focus on breathing or something else. Thinking or being in “flow” is different from meditation, but you can meditate walking, standing, laying in bed. It’s a bit hard for me to do it in bed unless it’s the morning because I often fall asleep.
