What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness has several definitions. The main premise behind being mindful is that we accept our feelings (positive or negative) and what is happening in our own lives without passing judgment. Life can be difficult and presents with challenges on a daily basis. The more judgments we pass onto ourselves and these challenges, the more stress is encountered.
Mindfulness encourages acceptance and living in the present moment with everything. Even in our darkest hour mindfulness can be employed. Mindfulness is a continued way of living and being. So, whether you are enjoying a meal with a friend or on your commute to work, it is to be done with full attention and positive regard.
