To pee or not to pee? Mindful weighs in on flow

So...you’re meditating and you have to pee. Hold it, or get up to go?

We’re not talking about the kind of “flow state” experienced by high-performance athletes or how absorbed you get during a good scribble session in your adult coloring book.

We’re talking about the down-to-earth, gotta go, kind of flow. In this five-minute video, mindfulness teachers weigh in on whether it’s better to interrupt your meditation session to use the bathroom or remained seated in an upright position. Hint: The bladder is not an elastic organ.
