There are more and more research articles about the benefits of meditation.
I approach meditation with a minimalist style. Do the simplest thing, think the simplest way.
All i need is a quiet space in my home, start with 5 to 10 minutes. Set the timing on your phone so it rings after 5 minutes, or 2 minutes if you can’t wait.
Sit down , cross your legs, and sit still, breath in and out. Don’t let your brain and your mind wondering about with waves of thought. Just think nothing, the way to do this is just focus on the breath, in… then out…, then repeat…
Meditation has helped me sleep better, better quality sleep, reducing stress and a clearer mind. A clearer mind has helped me to tackle life in a more optimistic and effective approach.
