Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

Mindfulness is a quality that every human being already possesses, it’s not something you have to conjure up, you just have to learn how to access it.

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

While mindfulness is innate, it can be cultivated through proven techniques. Here are some examples:

  • Seated, walking, standing, and moving meditation (it’s also possible lying down but often leads to sleep)
  • Short pauses we insert into everyday life
  • Merging meditation practice with other activities, such as yoga or sports.

Four qualities of mindfulness

When we’re mindful, we reduce stress, enhance performance, gain insight and awareness through observing our own mind, and increase our attention to others’ well-being.

Mindfulness meditation gives us a time in our lives when we can suspend judgment and unleash our natural curiosity about the workings of the mind, approaching our experience with warmth and kindness to ourselves and others.Mindfulness

The goal of mindfulness is to wake up to the inner workings of our mental, emotional, and physical processes.

Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally, says Kabat-Zinn. “And then I sometimes add, in the service of self-understanding and wisdom.”
