psychosis and meditation
Do you guys know if meditation can improve symptoms of psychosis such as paranoia. Meditation reduces the need for sleep and might contribute to paranoia, even though the person feels fully refreshed

It depends what you mean by meditation. The word "meditation" can mean different things to different people.
The way I understand and practice meditation, yes, definitely. Meditation does help with mental problems tremendously. It does not contribute to paranoia but relieves it because it makes us far more aware.
But again. Depends what you mean by "meditation".

It might help with being able to recognize those paranoid thoughts as being just thoughts, as you can better detach from them so they don't seem so real. It allows you to take the role of the witness, so these thoughts can just float by without any sort of reaction from you, which leaves you calmer and less prone to freak out. Deep breathing helps with this as well.
