Mediation is to focus the mind and calm your emotions.

When i mediate i will lie down and breathe deeply in and out until I feel that my thoughts are in the present or i don't think of other things other than my breathing. But this is only one type of mediation There are other types of mediation which i will list below.

Imagining the place.
In this method, you can sit anywhere you like and imagine you are at the local park, the north pole or the beach.
For example you choose the beach, imagine yourself there and moving towards the water. The more real it seems the better. when in the water, imagine the water feeding you with energy and you feel better as you sit in the water and feel the waves. Do this as long as you want. When you think you are ready, go back to the beach and go back to yourself. You can choose any setting you want as long as you feel it is benifits you.

This method is for people who cannot relax or concentrate enough to do any of the above techniques.
For this type, you can just go for a walk somewhere comfortable it can be in the dark, it can be in the light, but it is better if the places you go to has as little people as possible, it is best if the place is within walking distance from your home. So that you can go back as soon as you feel tired.

Mediation is good if you constantly feel stressed it can help you to go away from the stress placed on you from everyday life. And help you cope better.

why do you call it mediation? it seems like it's just you involved. no other parties.

mediation is supposed to be done by yourself right? unless you prefer to be with others then you can create a mediation group?

Guilty as charged.

I especially liked the simplicity of the two parts of your original post, and the variety of approach between them.

There is no single, one size fits all, "right way" to meditate. Your post elegantly conveys this truth.

Meditation has to be just about the simplest "excercise" there is. For most folks, finding the time to do it is more of a challenge than doing it when the time is found.

Nicely done.
