What is Mindfulness?
“Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges when we deliberately focus attention on our present moment experience in a non- judging, accepting way” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness involves paying attention to whatever is happening in the present moment with a kind and friendly attitude towards ourselves and our experience. We all have the innate capacity to be mindful and we can develop this skill through meditation practice, and the cultivation of particular attitudes such as curiosity, acceptance and kindness.
Through practicing mindfulness, we come to know ourselves better, and learn to recognise how we relate both to the external world, and the internal world of thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. This self awareness is the first step in learning to respond rather than react habitually to the stressors and challenges that life presents.
Mindfulness can also lead to a greater appreciation of the little things and life’s joys that we may not fully experience because of our tendency to become preoccupied with what has happened and what might happen.
