John Y’s Musings from the Middle: Monkey Mind

Monkey Mind—according to Buddhists a term meaning “unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable”

For those of us who read this less as an interesting factoid and more as a diagnosis, fear not.

There are two apparently successful approaches for treating Monkey Mind.

1) Ratchet down with meditation, yoga, diet, lifestyle changes, and medication.

2) Ratchet up. Like The Stones. And become a Monkey Man.

Although the first option is preferred, there is merit to option two as well.
