  1. Simplest one I know is a meditation where you count your breaths, starting over again if you lose focus. Do this for about 5 minutes each day until you are adept at it, then increase to 10 minutes. You can do this while seated, and I use a timer too.
    Usually I get to about 10 breaths before I lose focus and restart the count. As always, a quiet area is helpful, and I do close my eyes. Good luck . . .

  2. Dark room, no music or any distractions of any kind and just concentrate on your breathing. Inhale to the max in 3 sec. exhale for 6 to 8 seconds.

  3. Here are a couple of techniques that I use:
    Breathing meditation – 1) Check posture. 2) Close your eyes and relax. 3) Focus on your breath entering and leaving your body. 4) Count breaths mentally one to four. Repeat. 5) Don’t fight a wandering mind, but calmly direct it back to task. 6) Sit for a minute afterwards.
    “Mantra” technique (choose a personal “calm” word or phrase that you will repeat in your meditation — I use the nonsectarian “Be One. Be Love. Be Peace.”) – 1) and 2) as above in the Breathing meditation. 3) Listen to your breathing and let it relax you with each breath. 4) Once you are relaxed, mentally “hear” your “calm” word or phrase in your mind. Let it repeat in your mind. 5) Don’t fight a wandering mind, but calmly direct it back to task. 6) Sit for a minute afterwards.

  4. Another cool way to meditate, is to listen to “binaural beats” or Tibetan singing bowls. I tend to use the mindfulness method (sitting and just “being”, while being aware of breath or counting breath) but sometimes I like using mp3’s. Here’s a place where you can sample some binaural beats (you must listen with headphones for full effect) http://healingbeats.com/

    Glad to hear you’re willing to try the “malarkey”.
