Meditation develops your brain, just like physical exercise develops your body. The most important part of meditation is persistence; dedicate yourself but do not be too serious about it. The more you practice, the more skill you will have. The reward will come when you are slowly able to use these new skills in your daily life. You will find that you have the ability to remain calm in situations that may have previously provoked you, such as when someone is angry with you. When you are feeling anxious and your brain starts to race, you will be able to breathe slowly and ease your worries instead of escalating them.
There are many methods of meditation. You may find that different methods may be more appropriate at different times. What is important is that you follow the method for long enough to reap the benefits. In order to achieve results, you must fully dedicate yourself to trying on method for an established amount of time, rather than constantly switching to find one that is the right fit.
