I've been spending time each morning doing standing and moving meditations.
walking and breathing - inhale over three steps, exhale for three steps, trying to keep my attention focused simply on breathing and walking.
8 brocades - this is a series of stuff you do with and do your body, a qigong series.
Other times I'll use my Uechi stances for standing meditation. For example, I'll hold the double upper rising block posture from a sanchin or a neutral stance with the arms at their highest point - and just stand there for 10 or 15 minutes.
Sometimes I sit and light a short incense stick and focus on breathing.
Sometimes I'll do the loving kindness meditation:
May I be filled with loving kindness
May I be peaceful and at ease
May I be happy
And then you use that as a outward meditation by filling in someone's name or the world for yourself.
I mix it up quite a bit. What I try to do is get in some form of meditation or qigong every day.
Here's something I think you might find relevant.
Thich Nhat Hanh & Nguyen Anh-Huong
"In meditation, the practice of calming, resting, and dwelling happily in the present moment can be difficult at first because our minds are always racing. The more you try to stop your racing mind, the more it resists. Mindfulness is not meant to supress or get rid of the racing mind, but simply recognize its presence.
If anxiety, sorrow, confusion, or fear happen to arise while you sit, greet them with a gentle smile; and if you are a visual person, invtie them to rest in your lap or next to you as you sit. Return to the practice of conscious breathing.
...start with a short period of time, five or ten breaths. If you think you have to practice medidtation for too long a period of time, there is no way you will maintain daily practice. Instead, throughout the day you can use the ringing of the telephone, or the sound of your watch or any other cue to stop all doing and thinking for a moment. Just enjoy your breathing."
