I am rarely a depressed person. Is this a normal experience of a beginning meditation practice, or is something else going on? I tend to think it was a reaction to the meditation, because my exercise, eating, and other daily routines have not changed. Thank you all for your insight.
You indicate that you had a "nice session." Can you say a bit more about how you meditated, and what (if anything) you meditatated on? Can you think of anything that come up that might have set you off the next day? Maybe something popped up that you quickly repressed?
