The Stoic Jew
How to Take a Gratitude Bath
Show Notes

Length: 12 minutes 20 seconds
Synopsis: I accidentally invented a new form of meditation this morning, which I call "taking a gratitude bath." I subsequently realized that I already "take a gratitude shower" every day when I say the morning blessings. I could have waited until I tweaked this technique and compiled sources to support it, but in the spirit of my breaking-through-podcaster's-block, I decided to just record it in my parked car without any texts in front of me.
