Anhedonia is common with depression and other mental illness

I must have it for years now its bad

I have anhedonia, too. Meditation is currently my favorite “activity.”

Its supposed to be good to meditate

Yea, it’s like the only thing that helps nowadays. If you haven’t tried, I highly recommend it.

You know

Im not the only person feeling numbed


Mindfulness meditation is harder than concentration meditation. Concentration meditation being focusing on one specific thing, the breath, for example.

never got anything out of that.
tried taking a class, and they knew half the class would drop out.
well, I was one of em.
took another and they were doing OOOMM.
wasn’t ready for that, who is that for?

my meditation used to consist of being aware of my breaths
while running long distance.
does that count?
my daughter did it too.
my son did sprints.

Yea, chanting isn’t my favorite.
Do you remember which other meditations you tried? Imho, meditation IS for everyone.
Exercise is good, too.
