Practice adding intercessory prayers to your medical regime. These can be short and to the point: "For of all those who live with this same illness. For all of those who need medicines and cannot acquire them. For all of those who brought this medicine into being." How does this practice affect your own experience of taking the medicines?

Some medications are literally taken by people all over the world (insulin, for example). Before taking your medication, allow yourself to pause and remember all the others who are connected to you in this way. Make note of your changing awareness as you practice this prayer of connection.
