What Is The Monkey Mind?

The Monkey Mind is a term coined in Buddhism to describe the mind’s natural tendency to be restless, scattered, and unfocused. It is the tendency of the mind to jump from one thought and emotion to another, often in a repetitive or chaotic manner.

This can mean that the mind is often filled with constant and persistent mental chatter, or a stream of thoughts and worries that prevent clarity and the ability to make decisions. The Monkey Mind can lead to a state of being where one is constantly anxious, restlessly preoccupied, and unable to focus on one task or thought at a time.
