On any given moment the mind can be in the middle of a hundred different thoughts. To calm the mind focus on your breathing. Allow yourself to either count each breath in and our or mentally think ‘inhale’ and ‘exhale’ as you do each. This will begin to calm the thinking mind that remembers you’re out of milk at random times.
