If your mind wanders (in meditation) from its focus on the breath, don't get upset. Simply noticing that you have been thinking, daydreaming, or worrying is a wonderful achievement! Gently but firmly return your attention to the breath. And then do it again the next time, and the next time, and the time after that.  Bhante Gunaratana "The Four Foundations of Mindfulness in Plain English," p. 27 www.wisdompubs.org/author/bhante-gunaratana. Buddhism.

Mindfulness in plain English / Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

Meditation helps us become fully aware of what is going on in the mind and body here and now. All too often, we sleepwalk through our days, musing about the past or daydreaming about the future. Mindfulness teaches us to cut through the fog and bring focus to the present moment.
