I am Scott and I'm new to Treeleaf and relatively new to Buddhism and meditating. I have two issues in meditating. When I first close my eyes and get relaxed, I get itchy, especially around my face. I'll go ahead and scratch, and it seems like once I scratch, I'm okay for the rest of the meditation. Is that fairly common? Also, I tend to keep my mind active. It seems like my mind wanders off in multiple directions when I meditate. I heard somewhere about counting breaths, which has helped to some degree. Does anyone have suggestions in how to still my mind? Thanks!
