What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a way of training the mind to pay attention to each moment in time, in a non-judgmental way. When you bring your attention to your body, to your breath, your thoughts, your feelings and the world around you in the present moment, you will find that your relationship to your experience of life changes fundamentally. Mindfulness is not about trying to become better or changing who you are. It involves an attitude of acceptance. If we fully accept who we are and where we are in the moment, without rejecting our experience, we allow things to unfold naturally. Without striving we allow change to happen. Mindfulness is a skill that you can learn for calming your mind and relaxing your body through focusing on present-moment awareness. Mindfulness is a way of bringing us back in touch with ourselves so that we can relate directly to whatever is happening in our lives right now with acceptance, curiosity, and non judgment.
