Have you ever laid down to sleep and your mind begins to recap and rethink those things you did, those you could have done better and those ones you wished you had controlled yourself over and not done? I suppose it is a good thing so it would guide us to be better people in our dealings for the next day.
But does it also happen to you that once your mind starts off on a thought, it begins to link to various other things that by the time you realized your mind had been wondering, you don’t even remember where your thoughts started from? Funny, right? I bet that’s how a lot of us are.
If I may share a terrible secret here, sometimes even when I pray, I think my mind wonders off sometimes, not often I hope. I think it’s called mind-wandering. It is sometimes referred to as task-unrelated thought(s) which is the experience of thoughts not remaining on a single topic for a long period of time, particularly when people are not engaged in an attention-demanding task.
Have you noticed this happens to you? When and how frequently does it happen to you?
