Monkey Mind

By

Updated September 03, 2012

Definition: Describes a mind that jumps from thought to thought like a monkey jumps from tree to tree. The monkey mind is not content with exisiting in the present moment, but rather is constantly distracted by the thoughts that pass through.
Examples:
Focus on your breath as a tool to remain in the present moment, rather than letting your monkey mind take over.
