I have found meditation very helpful, and when I can manage it, meditating at least three days a week is useful in helping me reach the “thrive” level of living. (Survive/maintain/thrive)

Oddly enough, I find daily meditation disruptive, but my meditation tends toward self-psychoanalysis instead of the regular “counting breaths” or “just be” meditations. While my style has been intensely useful, daily use … I guess it feels like the balance is disrupted, that I’m giving my unconscious/subconscious too much input. Almost a ‘too many cooks’ feeling. If I intersperse with “regular” meditation it’s much more stabilizing. The other has just become so second nature it’s hard to avoid slipping into it.
