Meditation and calming down the monkey mind

“When you become the master of your mind, you are master of everything.”

- Swami Satchidananda -

"Monkey Mind", a term that refers to our internal monologue
What are you doing today?
What do you desire?
What do other people expect from you?
Who are you judging?
What are your expectations?
 
You CAN train your mind to be free of all this chatter
Imagine if you could notice these thoughts but not react to them, to not react to this monkey inside your head.
 Notice each thought as it passes but try to stay present in every moment and action.
Bring control over that emotional side of your brain.
 
You CAN train your mind as you can train your body
Don't expect it to happen overnight.
Just like you can't become a marathon runner overnight, you can't become a guru of the mind in one day.
However, the first single step here is to become conscious. Knowing that your life can become a meditation.
Breathwork, movement, mind training can change the anatomy, physiology and function of your brain.
 
Becoming conscious of your emotions
Don't get me wrong, none of this is easy.
Acceptance and learning strategies to deal with the lows rather than react to them is the key to managing the mind,
 
the key to controlling your monkey!
 
Taming your monkey mind will do all of the following for you
  • It will give you clarity of mind;
  • It will allow you to focus on the present and on the task at hand;
  • It will improve the quality of your sleep;
  • It will increase your sense of calm and well-being;
  • It will make you happier.

Meditation

Meditating is the most effective technique you can use to calm your monkey mind. By meditating you’ll be training your mind to become still, and you’ll be regaining power and control over your thoughts.
If you create a daily practice of meditation you’ll become skilled at quieting your mind and at silencing the monkey mind at will.
