Mastering Your Monkey Mind

A calm mind can find better solutions, make better decisions and be more creative.

Great. But how do you get a calm mind into today’s stressed-out world?

First you need to understand the ‘monkey mind’.

Your mind is constantly bombarded with stimuli. It’s full of questions, problems, lists, ideas and solutions…all scrambled together.

This is called the ‘monkey’ state of mind. It’s a lot of noise and clutter. Almost nothing is clear.

When you are feeling like your brain is overloaded and you’re struggling to solve problems, you know your monkey mind has taken charge.

There are simple things you can do to clear the clutter and reassert your calm mind – your master mind.

For some people, meditation is the thing. For others, an intense workout does the trick. For me, it’s writing.

When you are in your ‘master mind’ state, fireworks of ideas and solutions start to fly. So, it’s worth taking the time to figure out how to shift to that state.
