What is the best way to practice meditation?

The best way to practice meditation is to just do it. The biggest obstacle to you doing your meditation is that you will ’trick’ yourself into believing that you don’t have the time to meditate. Start off by doing just a few minutes, and then as you get used to it increase the time you sit. But remember that it is the quality of your meditation that makes the changes in your neural pathways, making you feel more relaxed and happy, not for how long you have sat!
