This article suggests points out that if someone decides they want to try meditation techniques to bring some kind of peace to their lives, they often feel like they are missing something or they get frustrated because it seems like they aren’t “doing it” right.
“Are you just beginning your meditation practice? Are you having a hard time with things like calming your mind, sitting still, or even making the time to meditate? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then you’ll benefit from trying some or all of these three meditation techniques for beginners.”
If you have tried the whole sitting Buddha style and complete stillness thing during your first few times using meditation techniques and it is just too much for you, try a more relaxed position, not too comfortable, it’s not going to help you if you always fall asleep during your meditation time.
