Try this: Clear your mind. Think of absolutely nothing. Take the next minute or so to try it; we'll wait. Done? Great. What went through your head? If it was something like, "Why is this article telling me what to do? Don't forget to swing by the grocery store later. I'm hungry. Can a ghost and a zombie come from the same person?" then good news: You're completely normal. Mind-wandering is your brain's default mode. That doesn't mean you need to accept it, though — learning to focus your mind has a lot of benefits.
