Sometimes, life can throw issues and challenges at us that drive us absolutely berserk trying to figure out and resolve, and this is called stress. It can even get to the point where it drives someone to insanity. There is an interesting term for when the symptoms of stress take over your life. It is called Monkey Mind.

This a term that depicts when you have reached a place where stress or confusion has become prominent, and you will not calm down or think straight or logically, where you seem to have had real sanity leave you. You seem to have lost complete focus on the present or even reality, or you feel like you are on the verge of becoming mentally unstable or even real insanity and are struggling to get back on track. An interesting description I heard the other day that can describe when you are suffering from a Monkey Mind and experiencing the loss of focus is, “The mind is like a drunken monkey stung by a scorpion.”
