This is natural when you first start meditating. Keep at it to make it a habit and eventually the monkey mind will go away. Guided apps can be helpful as they often provide you something to focus on. There are several in Fabulous that I have used. Also check out six phase meditation (free) at Mindvalley and “Waking-up” by Sam Harris (free trial and then subscribption).
- How do you maintain your habits when recovering from an injury?
- How can I deal with becoming sleepy during my meditation?
- Which area of your body do you “feel your breathing” the most? Do you imagine being in another place during a session or do you mainly focus on your breathing patterns?
- What do other people focus on when they meditate?
- What tool, if any, is the most helpful while meditating? I personally use Mala beads, but would like to try more.
- What are the advantages you see with meditation in a group?
- I wonder if there are others who have trouble visualizing, while meditating? Is yes, can you do it now? If yes, what did you do that allowed you to visualize? I am so frustrated! TIA.
- It’s so easy to stop meditating and not get back into it. How do I persist with my practice even when it seems like I don’t have time or patience for it?
- Does anyone use a candle when they meditate?
- Does anybody use a meditation pillow? And do you meditate first thing in the morning or later?
- How long before you feel that meditation is working?
- What is your practice like? Do you ever find yourself avoiding meditation?
- Why do you choose to meditate? Is it because of how it makes you feel?
- Is better if you meditate with more people?
- How long do you usually meditate and what’s in your mind when meditating? How efficiently keep concentrating?
