I don’t know about you but sometimes I have so many different things cycling through my brain at the same time but it’s hard to keep track of any one of them.

I’m not talking about just work or personal finance related issues. I’m also talking about trying to keep my kids’ schedules straight. I’ve got three young daughters with a lot of friends who have birthdays seemingly every weekend.

Then there are school events and conferences, pick up and drop off and after school sports! Thank God only one of them is particularly athletic! Throw in a dental appointment and a haircut, and maybe a work event, and now you’ve got a real monkey mind on your hands.

I say this…but I also know that, compared to a lot of people, I’ve got it pretty darn good. I make plenty of money and can hire plenty of help and my kids are really well behaved.

The issues that I am talking about aren’t new to society. They are simply a product of being an adult and having responsibilities. That said, it’s not a bad idea once in a while to take a step back and focus on our own mental health.

So in this week’s Wealth Formula podcast, that’s exactly what we will do. We will talk about the monkey mind and what you might be able to do if you suffer from it.
