Climbing out of the river of thought. 

When we practice mindfulness meditation, we are practicing climbing out of the middle of the river, and settling onto the bank, where we can watch the river flow. No matter how fast the river is moving, you can climb out. Watching the river flow, simply means just noticing what kinds of thoughts are crashing around in your head, and trying not to judge them.

You are too busy!

One consequence of busy-ness is that your nervous system never has time to settle. Which means that you may experience constant feelings of stress. When you want to relax or go to sleep, your nervous system is too amped up to let you rest.
