Monkey mind is something many of us struggle with. It is a mind that cannot sit still. It needs to do something. It needs a job. It will not let us rest in peace. The modern stressful world promotes monkey mind. Meditation and mindfulness slowly over time reduce monkey mind. Good rest, good nutrition, regular exercise, avoiding stimulants like coffee and sugar, and taking regular “time-outs” can also help reduce monkey mind. Monkeys are fabulous; monkey mind is not. Find life beyond monkey mind. Find the calmer deeper waters of happiness and love.
