RE: Reframing your mind to battle depression and CBT
I think the mind needs breaks from all information except basic awareness often. The book actually suggest doing the exercises twice a day along with a 3 minute mini mediation. I will have to add the mini mediation. I don't quite have time for 2 30 minute meditations a day. There are some contradictory element with CBT. Such as that when you debate your mind according to the author it tends to dredge up other negative thoughts, sort of like googles suggestions on searches. Although allowing CBT thoughts in mediation is an interesting experience I may do more often. Mediation is sort of like a blank canvas, where you don't have much control over the paint. Although you can direct the flow to a degree.
