What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing awareness on the present moment. In everyday life, mindfulness is about learning to direct our attention to our experience as it unfolds, rather than being ruled by our thoughts. Stress and strain of life can result in us feeling caught up in a constant stream of thoughts, feelings and emotions, reflecting on past issues and/or feeling overwhelmed by future worry and anxieties. Mindfulness aims to achieve a relaxed, non-judgemental awareness of thoughts, feelings and sensations. Mindfulness can help us to understand ourselves better, enjoy life more and achieve a sense of well-being.
