Monkey Mind


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.
Focus on your breath as a tool to remain in the present moment, rather than letting your monkey mind take over.
