Quieting Your Monkey Mind

Regarding the last post, Richard had a Question:

“I’m a fan of “quiet time”, I really easily fall into the habit of working without thinking about priorities, so find it helpful to find focus.

However, in the past week or so I’ve really struggled to stop the chattering voices during these time-outs. I usually turn to some familiar Hynotherapy MP3’s during these times when I struggle to relax, but this past week even this hasn’t helped.

Do you mind me asking what your own personal technique for relaxing is when those problem voices in your head just won’t shut up?”

My Response:

As for quieting my monkey mind, I find that it helps to have a spoken meditation.

I get tired of almost all audio along these lines, so I collect $10 CDs and mp3s and just cycle through them. I find that “relaxation” audio is good because they just take you through relaxing various parts of the body and you can focus on those words rather than on whatever your mind wants to work on.

My wife and I have really enjoyed various Yoga Nidra CDs. The name is a little misleading as it has nothing to do with Yoga as we westerners know it. You lie on your back and they walk you through a series of relaxation techniques.

Hope that helps.

Other tips, anyone?
