What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is all about training yourself to pay attention in a special way to things happening around you.

It is about learning to focus on the present moment, letting the past be, and trying not to think about what may be coming up in the future.

So much time is spent thinking about things that happened in the past, and worrying about what might happen in the future, that we forget the present moment is all we really have.

Mindfulness is a way of helping us to experience life as is happens. Mindfulness does not happen automatically. It is an ongoing training process of developing new thought patterns, but the benefits to your mental and physical health will be worth it.

Well...yes, they do really work. The fact is, science shows definite health benefits for people who use mindfulness and meditation.

Before we dive in, let’s just make sure we’re on the same page when we say “mindfulness” and “meditation.”

“Meditation” is the ancient practice of connecting the body and mind to become more self-aware and present. It’s often used to calm the mind, ease stress, and relax the body.

Practicing “mindfulness” is one of the most popular ways to meditate. It’s defined as “paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.”
