I found meditation, yoga and like minded things way to slloooowwwwwwwww and difficult to stick with… not enough patients… HOWEVER I did find that there were active and engaging alternatives.
My favorite is known as ‘poi’. below is a random YouTube clip as an example (most people don’t use fire, but it’s a far more exciting example then someone spinning tennis balls in an old pair of socks!).
The combination of movement, exercise, flexibility and focus take all of the things I enjoy about martial arts, meditation and good old escapism and combine them, into a evolving challenging but rewarding hobby.
I spin during study breaks and whenever I need to just relax… like a moving meditation… anyways… I’ve found it very helpful.
Maybe something like this would help you out?
