Meditation Causing a Cold?
I'm on week 4 of mindfulness meditation, following an audio. I've been enjoying it and one of the key changes I've experienced is a peaceful sleep at night. But yesterday, right after meditation I developed a cold. In fact today, it has gotten worse - a blocked and runny nose. Does this have anything to do the meditation? Is it something that should be stopped?

I’m glad that you’re having a good experience with meditation. Please rest assured that catching a cold has nothing to do with meditation. Colds happen. Keep meditating.
