Monkey Mind

I have been reading a book that a friend recommended on her blog called Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I am only about halfway through the book at this point and I love it. I pretty much only have time to read on the subway and at lunch and I find that these moments fly by too quickly leaving me impatiently waiting for the next time I can sneak in a chapter or two. One of the concepts mentioned in this book is to have a mind like a monkey swinging from branch to branch. My mind is a lot like that. I feel so full of ideas and thoughts and worry and concern and what if this and how about that and… well you get the picture. I, much like the Liz in the book, need to quiet my mind but have a ridiculously hard time doing so. I will have to keep reading to find out if she ever has a better time meditating. I am going to try to practice my quiet mind tonight at yoga and see where that gets me.
