If your mind is wandering off, you have to make sure that you have anything that will distract you off. Turn off all T.V's, fans, or anything in that nature that will distract you. You may want to try Alpha Wave Meditation that uses alpha waves to calm and clear your mind. You do not want to focus on clearing your mind too hard as you may hurt yourself more than you are trying to clear your mind. Make sure you are always comfortable when meditating as that also enlists complications.
I have a distractive mind myself. when I was beggining to meditate, I started while I was sleepy, and I would meditate myself to sleep. I did that enough, eventually I no longer needed to do that. I can now meditate whenever. You do not have to sit cross legged. That is a common misconception. You can just lay down how you would normally go to sleep, breathe in through your nose, and out your mouth about ten times, and continue doing that, or use your own way of meditation.
