What should I do if my mind wanders during a meditation?
When you notice your mind getting distracted, simply bring your attention back to the object of the meditation (e.g. your breath, body sensations or sounds). Don't get upset, just recognise that it happened and let it go. Remember that meditation is not about stopping thoughts or making the mind go ‘blank’. It is about learning to recognise when we have become distracted and simply returning the attention to where we want it.
