I find it easy since I'm a calm person, if I want to, I can just sit here for an hour, and the rest of the day will seem a lot more relaxed.
Any tips?

I wouldn't be able to give any good tips, if at all. The best thing I could say is to just let yourself go, and empty your mind, even if that's cliche. It's like trying to fall asleep, best not to fight any feelings.

I know emptying your mind can be difficult sometimes, but it's rewarding. Like when you hear something, but are not quite sure what it is, and you focus a second to hear it again, and you're brain is completely silent in that instance.

Getting completely relaxed is usually the hardest part. It helps to be in a good position so that you don't have to force anything to stay in place. Search your body for anything that feels tense, and consciously relax it. Try to stack your vertebrae so that they hold the weight of your head, neck, and torso without effort (stole that from the internet). Only focus on your breathing. Breathe in slowly and deep. After focusing on breathing for a bit, you can cast that away, essentially focusing on nothing, thus silencing your mind. Once your mind is empty, and it feels like you're completely relaxed, it should be easy. Getting to that state is hardest part.

I tried it for a bit but didn't get anything out of it. I thought it was pretty boring. Once in a while I'd get a slight buzz sort of like that you would get from a cig, but I think that was just an oxygen high from all the deep breathing.

I've tried it many times, but most of the time I can't really "reach" any of these amazing, meditative levels of 'nirvana' that people who meditate claim of, I usually just feel really relaxed. I usually can't get my brain to switch off, I think too much

Meditation very good practice.No one can get Concentration at one day or at one instance.So practice daily increasing the time interval.Very good results will be there.

For those who can't clear their minds - don't worry about it, very few people can actually clear their mind of all thoughts, but providing you can discipline yourself to merely watch your thoughts (the key word there is watch, don't grab on to any of them, don't explore them, don't try to influence them in any way, just watch them as they pop into and out of, or flow, through your head, and remain detached) then you will benefit.

I've been meditating since I was 7 years old. I was diagnosed with ADHD and instead of obeying the doc's orders and putting me on the **** medication, my parents sent me to a local place specialising in yoga and meditation. I practice both every day and they are part of my life. As an aside, I think it helped with the ADHD.
