You can learn to meditate with regular classes, at retreats, using guided meditations, with mobile apps, or just practice on your own at home. Like with most things, the key is to building a habit or routine, you could start with just 5 minutes every morning and see how it goes.
My personal recommendation to improving and increasing the time of your meditation is to be mindful of moments throughout the day when you can meditate. This could be 2 minutes, 10 or 30, when you can stick a timer on your phone and start meditating. Doing this on the fly, at different times, and in different environments, has been excellent practice for me, and really helped cement the habit. - Adam Pike
