If there is too much wandering mind, there is no need to watch the wandering mind; but you can still know that wandering mind is there. So, don’t focus on the wandering mind, but ground yourself on a physical object. If you know there is wandering mind, that’s enough; no need to focus on it. So, you’re busy watching the physical object – then wandering mind does its job and you do your job. Try to be aware of the physical object and also know that thoughts are already there. That’s better.
