This past year I went deep into meditation research and finally after trying to few I began to do it more often multiple times a day and the constant thoughts and chatter went away, overthinking and analyzing all stopped after about 14 months. I feel calm, zen and peaceful all the time now by default, I don’t get angry about minor things I don’t feel hatred or ill will towards others. But, I also lost my drive and productivity, my work qualify starting slipping I find it hard to take most things seriously and I feel stuck in this state now.. I can’t bring myself to do difficult work that requires complex thought and I feel lazy and unmotivated towards everyday life things..
I have stopped meditating 2 months ago but I still cant escape this “zen like” state.. how do I go back?
