Was thinking exactly the same thing when I saw the thread title, well said. Of course it sounds over the top to people who haven't meditated, and even
if they do it can take years to really get going with it.
The thing for people starting out though : If you do it properly you'll get some type of result to keep you going. It might just be a good feeling for
5 mins after finishing, but eventually the whole way you are and the way you see things can change massively.
Another thing is to check out several different types of meditating, because some people are geared towards certain types. I can do Zen for instance,
which is my favourite usually, but if I get stuck for a while I can switch to a Theravada type and things go better instantly.
And find a balance too if you get into it. Try not to do too little or to overdo it. Finally : don't expect it to be easy. Learning how to concentrate
can take a while. Don't try to suppress thoughts either, notice them, let them go, then carry on focusing on breathing, etc.
Would go into more detail but will probably make a thread instead in the near future. Time to meditate.
