Hello Gwenlot, I will gladly share my experiences with meditations, I can describe it in many different ways. It is a good stress relief,it strengthens your will and sharpens your mind. It's good for the body,mind,and spirit which can help you in the long run. There are a vast variety of meditations and techniques what I would suggest is that you try them out for yourself and see which one suits you best. There are many articles on this web site that will guide you along the path of focus and patience. What I personally think you should research is how to meditate your inner chakras. It'll bring peace and balance to your life.... Love and peace friend.
