    If this is the wrong forum for this, I apologize and please delete this post.

    I have tried meditating multiple times (though not too many) using the focusing on breathing technique, but I find that even while I'm focusing on my breathing I'm still able to think about other things.

    Essentially I can focus on breathing in and breathing out while still thinking deeply about other things. This is not the same as thoughts drifting in and then releasing them, as I've heard is a key step in meditation.

    If anyone can help me with this I would greatly, greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you in advance!
