The "Mindfulness" meditation that I have done wasn't complicated at all. You sit quietly in a straight backed chair and focus your attention on your hand or a finger. Just watch your brain go crazy and try to keep focused on your hand. Much harder than it sounds. I would usually last about 10 seconds maybe before I would find myself sucked back into my thoughts. When this happens, gently bring your attention back to your hand or finger. Meditate for about 20 minutes twice a day.

What this does for me is I'm now able to separate from my screaming thoughts and watch them go by. And, yes, I'm not able to do this well very often. Most of the time, I'm glued to the thoughts like "normal'.
