    That's funny! My mom and I were talking about this just today. (A couple of hours ago.) Meditation. We agreed that forcing thoughts out of your mind during meditation is counterproductive. It's better to just let it enter and then continue to focus on your breathing, (or whatever the focus was) until the thought goes away on it's own.

    I tend to fall asleep when I try to meditate.

    But yeah, so difficult to keep my mind from wandering off

    It happens from time to time

    My mind sort of feels refreshed to the point that my mind finally decides that it is willing to tell me I am tired. Which, the only thing that has that strong of a power is if I am in a boring lecture (especially math courses) or it is 6 a.m. in the morning in which my mind (for no matter what reason) tells my body I am tired.

    i have tried it few time some years ago, i simply cant keep my mind from wandering. i was told its good to concentrate on some object in your mind like rock and keep eyes closed. i just couldnt do that, i could think of rock for like 10-30secs at times and then noticed that im thinking about something totally else. i think focusing on breathing would work better.

    i have been working out a bit in the past few days and i rest in meditation stance(sitting on my legs, not legs crossed), maybe i should try to focus on my breathing more, should be easier if i would be exhausted
