Whenever we meditate, our minds will start to wander. Meditation isn’t about preventing our minds from wandering. Instead, we simply try to notice whenever our minds have wandered during a meditation, and then gently redirect our attention back to where we want it.
So if you’re new to meditation and you find your mind is always wandering, try not get discouraged, because this happens to everyone. A wandering mind doesn’t mean you don’t know how to meditate, or that you’re bad at meditation. It doesn’t mean your brain works in a way that makes it impossible to meditate. All of our minds wander when we meditate, and there are things we can do to manage mind wandering when we meditate.
