These meditation styles work well if you learn by touching and doing.
Body scan: Lie down in a comfortable position and focus on each part of your body, starting at your toes and working your way up to the crown of your head. As you focus on each part, notice any sensations, tightness, or discomfort. Imagine releasing tension and relaxing each part of your body as you scan through it.
Walking meditation: Find a quiet, outdoor space and take a slow, mindful walk. Focus on the sensation of your feet hitting the ground, the feel of the sun or wind on your skin, and the different textures of the earth beneath your feet. As you walk, let go of any thoughts or distractions and simply focus on the sensation of your body moving.
Mudra practice: Mudra are symbolic hand gestures often used in yoga and meditation. These hand postures can help to channel energy and focus the mind. Try a simple mudra such as "Jnana Mudra" where the tip of the index finger and thumb touch, and the other three fingers are extended. This can be done while seated and you can focus on the sensation of the fingers touching and the energy flow between your finger tips
