Real Happiness 28-Day Meditation Challenge, Day 10

Today was all about the chattering mind: Do this, don't forget that, what about this. We may have a lot to do, but we don't need to let that tyrannize our minds. From Real Happiness:

Our objective when we meditate is to know what we're thinking as we're thinking it, and to know what we're feeling as we feel it instead of mentally ending up on another continent, wondering how we got there. When waves of memories, plans, and random thinking seem overwhelming, focus on breathing softly without forcing the breath. This will settle the mind.
