What I mean is, observing what the mind does by observing bodily sensations/reactions. For instance, I get coughing when I become uncertain, stomach pain when nervous, etc. It is like the body reacts differently to different mental states. So I figured why not observe the body instead of the mind? In the waking state, this method worked well and I was in control (relatively speaking). But the problem returned in the sleep state again.
Does anyone have any experience/insights on this? I dont know the technical term or if what I did was some sort of meditation at all. But it makes sense to me to 'use' the body to observe the mind (rather than observe the mind directly).
