    Both are grammatically correct

    but still poorly worded.

    Better:

    - This morning I meditated for thirty minutes.

    The second is particularly bad in wording (not in grammar)

    because it specifies how much meditation TWICE

    - "some" and "30 minutes"

    Neither, lose the comma and either is correct

    Both are grammatically correct.  Neither feels like a good statement of what you did.

    This morning I meditated flor 30 minutes.

    You do not need the comma after "morning."  While both are otherwise correct, they have a difference meaning.  By including the word "some" in the second sentence, it implies that only some of the 30 minutes was spend on meditation.  Or that you did additional meditation outside of the 30 minutes.

    Both sentences are not worded "naturally."  A native English speaker is more likely to say, "This morning I meditated for 30 minutes."  They would probably not use the phrase "I did meditation."

    This morning I meditated for 30 minutes.

    The question is, what did you meditate ON?

    Meditation is the ancient practice of rolling sacred scripture over and over in your mind to make it part of you. Like chewing your food before you swallow. It is NOT blanking out...

    I like this better

    "I meditated for thirty minutes this morning."

    The goal of language is to communicate concisely.
