Oh yes it is. I consider myself a fairly seasoned yogi and still, every time I first come to my mat, all my brain wants to do is tell stories about the day or week or even stress me out over random things that don’t matter. I know we’ve ALL been there at some point or another and guess what? It’s OK! This doesn’t make you “bad” at yoga or meditation and it doesn’t mean that you’re just not “the type of person” who can sit still. It’s a practice, just like anything else. And wherever you put effort you’ll get reward.
So next time you sit down to do your home practice or meditate and all you can think about is what to make for dinner, accept that. Don’t try to force those thoughts away, just let them come and then gently redirect.
