How to focus a wondering mind, and why.

Why multi-tasking and mind wandering is a double edged sword – it can take us away from the present moment, which is the only moment, but it also gives our brains perimeters in which we can learn to become better aware of present moment awareness.

I am a proponent of meditation. Formal, sit and be still meditation. Yoga is also meditation in motion. Swimming, weightlifting, free writing, etc. All these things can be forms of meditation and productive for the brain’s neuroplasticity.

But, what it important, as I have found, is the practice of actual mindful, seated meditation which I begin and end my days with.

I hope you find this article informative, as it gives a much more scientific approach to understanding how the brain functions with and without meditation.

Blessings to you today.

Namaste
