There are many meditation methods, Mindfulness, Transcendental Meditation, Guided Visualization, Qi Gong, Kundalini Mediation etc... If you are wondering what is the best way to meditate, or what are the best meditation techniques, here is my answer to you : they are all the same. The effectiveness of these methods don't depend on the methods themselves, but on how often you apply them in your daily routine.

Here are some tips that will help you with your meditation :

Make sure you have a good posture. It doesn't matter whether you are sitting on a chair or on the floor, just make sure your spine is upright with head up.

When you are first starting out, do it for two minutes. If that goes well, do it for four minutes. Add two minutes every week. You'll find yourself meditating for 30 minutes after 4 months.
Pay attention to your breath. Focusing on your breath will help you focus on the present.
Open your eyes. Even though some people find closing their eyes more effective, I think closing your eyes will make you drift away and lose focus. Opening your eyes allows you to be more present.

Meditate early in the morning. Let it be the first thing you do everyday. This way you don't forget to do it and it will boost your productivity for the day.

Meditation has many benefits. Although it seems easy, it is not. It requires focus and willpower. You can start today, and continue for the rest of your life.
