Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a term used to describe a certain way of paying attention in the present moment. It has gained popularity in the West through a surge of interest in Buddhism, but it can be practiced alongside many belief traditions or as a secular exercise. Mindfulness comes from a nonjudgmental place of attention and acceptance toward our minds, our bodies, and our feelings. While meditation practices often incorporate mindfulness, it can also be practiced while doing everyday activities. Mindfulness begets mindfulness: the practice increases our ability to be aware, awake, accepting, and less reactive, which can change how we relate to the world.
