Have you tried it yet?
I tried qigong and i always felt great and very energized in a good way after. My tip is to just start practicing, without needing to know exactly what youre doing.

There is a lot of good stuff on youtube and elsewhere online where you can read about it or watch videos, and of course there are a lot of good books. Sometimes you'd be surprised what's available at public libraries.

If you're doing qigong in a standing position, your posture is really important, big part of the equation. It's good to practice standing meditation, with your arms either hovering in front of one of the dantians, or relaxed at the sides; practice sinking into the lower dantian and the legs/earth, while at the same time floating your head/upper dantian upward, stretching the spine, all with minimal effort. Finding your center there allows qigong to be effective. Seated meditation/qigong posture is similar, whether on a chair or on the floor

In either case (standing/sitting), it's important to practice nei gong, the more passive/internal/low-physical movement element of qigong that involves moving qi directly with the mind or the yi (heart-mind intention/imagination). This practice lets you build up internal power and become more adept at using qi, and is amplified when physical movement/breathing are added in. This is all mostly the practice of internal bodily awareness, but that leads to building and revivification of the qi, and thus has physiological/psychological/spiritual/etc. impacts

I'd to share something because it's fresh in my mind and has come up this morning whilst practicing Tai Chi so it's not directly related to your request but might apply to it in someway.
What came up for me was the concept of unity and wholeness. That everything, starting with the bodily parts and postures are in unity with each other. Sounds a bit obvious I know but I thought I'd chip in. :)
So I suppose it would be to remember the concept of unity and body and awareness in unity in harmony.

Love that Joe, and of course, that really is the nub of every spiritual practice. Simple, but true and hard to really appreciate.
As a tip for those practicing Chi Gung/Qi Gong where you can, breathe to tan tien as you preform the technique (if no other specification for breathing has been told to you), as you breathe, tongue goes to the roof of the mouth andas the movements of the exercise become second nature, let your mind sit in the breathing, following the in and out breathe doggedly but softly, whilst expanding your awareness of the body as it moves, almost as if you were an observer of yourself.
