try to relax.
actually dont, trying is not relaxing.
relax, don't try.
also do not feel like you have to wipe out your thoughts or empty your mind, its actually more stressfull to the brain not processing information.
instead picture your thoughts like a tree during the fall, aknowledge your thoughts like brown leafs that fall and get blown away.
but if anything, dont follow mine or anyone else's advice, you are your own guide.
plus very important, don't believe anyone telling you that meditation is a specific process that you need to sit in "x or y" position and hum this or that, while visualizing gibberish.
true meditation is a constant mental process.
when walking, walk. when breathing, breathe. when cleaning, clean. etc etc etc
