Meditation is a technique used for thousands of years. It's about awaking and developing your awareness while getting a healthy sense of perspective. You’re learning to observe your thoughts and feelings without judgment. Eventually, you may start to better understand them as well as letting go of thoughts and feelings, that are not necessary or were bringing displeasure in your life.
Quite often I meet people that say they would love to practice yoga, but they don't have much time, looking for some advice on what asanas they should practice most, when they have available only few minutes.
What I believe is that we always have time; but what we finally do, is what actually has priority for us as individuals. Anyways, my answer to this question has always been one. Do simply Siddhasana! The most famous sitting meditation pose worldwide. It's the best way to slowly develop control over your body and mind. And sitting in this pose it's actually not even necessary. There are many types of meditation, so after a small research you may try what feels better for you.
