"Over" meaning in this context? Why don't you meditate over the sink and wash the dishes?

This is a phrasal verb and very difficult to translate ( meditate over) = look over the sink / stand over the sink ( person tends to be taller than the level of a sink ) -so we look down on the sink from eye view-

Usually when people wash the dishes they have to lean a bit forward over the sink, so this remark is a sarcastic one. Meaning do your meditating, but wash those dishes !
