When you first start meditating, it will feel weird. Yes. Your mind will tell you it's a waste of time. Why sit there and think about nothing? You will get annoyed. May I say, stick with it anyhow. It gets better.
There isn't one "way" to meditate that is better than another for everyone. Meditation is a very individual process and what works for me may not work for you. With that in mind, here is my personal practice.
