I was taught Transcendental Meditation in high school and learned some self-hypnosis techniques in college that I practiced a bit.

These types of meditation get you to focus/defocus your mind in active ways that appear to be beneficial.

If you're practicing some form of meditation that is just relaxing and daydreaming without trying to use your mind in a specific way - then it isn't really surprising that the results would be no different to relaxing and daydreaming or listening to music.
