I recently picked up meditation a few weeks ago. I went with a guided meditation app (details below) for meditation that lasted about ten minutes. While I'm still hit-and-miss on some days, and my consistency on when to do it is all over the place, I'm finding it really beneficial to my overall sense of well-being in life. I wanted a place to collaborate on meditation resources, share experiences, ask for advice, and just generally discuss meditation.
I'm still very new, but right now meditation is basically a time to sit in silence, explore how I'm feeling, and calm my inner rush. What I also see, however, is a whole lot of depth on the horizon, explorations and experiences that will come with continued practice. At least, that's what I think meditation is/will be for me.
So, if you meditate, want to try it out or pick it up regularly, come on in. Certis-- I hope you come share. I'd love to hear how you got to 30 minutes a day because that sounds so great to me right now, but also kind of daunting!
