Diary #128 Pleasant vs Challenging Meditations

Some meditations are geared to make one feel more relaxed, inspired, or otherwise generate a pleasant feeling.  These are particularly popular in apps as ad-hoc practices when somebody just wants to feel better.

Other meditations are geared to personal development and can be challenging, such as attention training or exploring difficult emotions.  These will typically be included in mindfulness courses.  Here rewards come through following a refined curriculum and integration in day-to-day life.


If you are interested in mind training enough to go outside the comfort zone, I reckon it is worth considering a mindfulness course.
