mindMindfulness is accepting and non-judgmental focus of one’s attention. It’s about your thoughts and sensation in the present moment. The practice is from the Buddhist tradition and is thousands of years old. Mindfulness has been popularized in the west by Kabat-Zinn who developed the Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program in the 70’s.

The practice of mindfulness is believed to promote well-being of body and mind reducing the worries of everyday living. Mindfulness is being used more and more in psychology practices to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions.

Mindfulness mediation and the practice of mindfulness focus on becoming aware of all incoming thoughts and feeling and accepting them, and not attaching or reacting to them.

Mindfulness practice helps people to focus less on reacting to incoming stimuli and instead accepting and observing them without judgment, moving from reacting to reflection altering their ability to accept and observe without judgment.
