Meditation term for a mind that refuses to be quiet and concentrated, so that your meditation is interfered with by your attention constantly finding new objects, like a monkey roaming through your brain.

Slang term describing the distracted state of mind that can occur at work when you should be focusing on the task at hand but you are only getting sidetracked into other non-workplace thoughts that are much more enjoyable.
Knowing I had a rapidly approaching deadline, I repeatedly attempted to focus myself on the project but a serious case of workplace monkey mind was making this entirely impossible!
