Mindfulness – What is it?

Mindfulness seems to be the latest craze and I am hearing it used so much these days.

What is it though?

In it’s simplest form – Mindfulness is paying attention, with intention to the present moment, without judgement but with an attitude of curiosity and compassion. ( from John- Kabat Zinn)

It is our only reality – this moment in time. And if we are curious and only notice what our senses are picking up, we are being truly mindful.

This awareness helps us feel more grounded, more at peace and at one with ourselves. We also grow in resilience, respond more than react and in general, feel better in ourselves as we cope better at life and living.

So, will you give mindfulness a go? Just take a moment and pause and simply notice what your senses are picking up.
