Hey... now I wonder, I think meditation don't strictly limit to sitting still and going to trance or dissolute in nothingness, even though it being the elevated level.
I think on the more exoteric level on meditation "in the moment", any action (or no action), doesn't matter what is being done, as long as the subject can melt and absorbed into the very moment and become one, it's a form of meditation. When the mind is totally focused on single object (or no object), time and space forgotten, subject object and action forgotten, what's left is the experience of total immersion, that is a form of meditation.
Say, I can just play instrument, dance, sing, paint, have a walk, just sit still, looking at something, drown in embrace, listening to something, or basically just anything the activity you might do, and melt away into it. Unified focus of mind and heart, until I forget the surrounding, time, the body, the breath (many time I found I stopped breathing for quite a long time), what I did earlier etc2 and become one with it in the moment. I think that experience is, if not similar to, meditative state. (The difference is that meditation is more passive on the physical activity and the focus is a symbol, or nothing, that is abstract compared to activity that might have attraction factor in the object, thus harder to reach the same state)
Even thought the result from various activity might vary, and actually fun to explore about. No need to rush things, try from the mundane activity and give more attention to everything you do, start to keep the mind and heart at pace and in focus, after awhile, you will get calmer and found the mind chatter has lessen and lot easier to navigate yourself around on meditating and everything else.
Or, having a guide on/ about meditation sounds good.
