Q: meditation is very calming, but can it also energise? e.g. doing it in the morning before work is great but it makes me sleepy for the day ahead. Is there a practice that fizzes you up?

I was also going to say something similar - I sometimes feel so calm in taking a pause to meditate that I feel sleepy

Q: What is the best way to handle uncomfortable bodily sensations? If you have an itch, for example, it can be hard to focus on the breathing.
