Good place to start! And it sounds like you know what works for you, so...I can only advise to keep that sense of what works for you, and not go, like, "Oh, but Aeons_Wing said that this method had this effect but it's different with me (and I'm not a fan of this one)." It's okay.
In Sri Sri Shankar's "Art of Living" yoga and meditation class I took once, we were taught to inhale for a count of 4, hold for 2, exhale for 6, and hold for 2. I couldn't get over how much better that was than the "fourfold breath" which made me feel like I had tacky cardio!
You can also do moving meditations, such as the Sun Salutation yoga routine or a Tai Chi routine, and visualizations to like imaging entering a tarot card illustration or a photograph or something. It doesn't always have to be sitting with eyes closed getting to a blank mind.
