“Mindfulness is the practice of living in the present moment and experiencing things without judgment. Mindfulness has both a mental and a physical component and emphasizes a mind-body connection. In addition to its spiritual associations, mindfulness can be a worthwhile practice for those who wish to reduce stress, manage pain, or cultivate personal awareness.
Quietness and focus on the breath are commonly used to aid in meditation. A person cultivates mindfulness during meditation by settling the mind and thoughts about the past or future and noticing what is going on in the body. The mind naturally wanders, but a person cultivating mindfulness takes note of this wandering and then brings the mind back to the present and to his or her breath or other point of focus. Mindfulness can be practiced in everyday life as well, during nearly any activity. Over time, mindfulness may help a person develop the ability to be calmer, more balanced and to live in a skilful way.”
