I am trying to learn to meditate and my brain even in a quite space keeps moving. Can anyone help me figure this out?

    I was watching PBS today and they suggested a walking meditation. The act of putting one foot in front of the other is a focus point! emoticon

    Great tips already given, however if you do an internet search you'll find there are so many videos out there and that way you can learn how to as well as tailor your meditation the way you want to, in a way that benefits you the most. Check some of them out and if you still have questions, feel free to copy the links and asks away. That's what we're here help each other on our journey!

    Awww I see you are still finding it difficult to focus and meditate, you might want to tackle the noise. These things are in the fore front of your mind because they may need to be dealt with...I do hope things get better and your stress level gets reduced soon. Hang in there.

    Good advice from Darkchild...I need to practice some meditation because I know my mind is always "going"...I would start small until I can train my brain to focus on the "stillness/quiet"....good luck!

    My two suggestions: 1.begin with small increments of time 2-5 minutes in the beginning and 2. find a focus,you could focus on your breathing or come up with a mantra to repeat.
I'm not practicing meditation at the moment but when I started years ago, that is how I began with a few minutes and the more you practice, the amount of time you can meditate will grow. Here is a great book to read: Savor Mindful Eating Mindful Life by Thich Nhat Hanh. There is a chapter on meditating for almost every moment of the day and a chant to go with it. emoticon emoticon
