Mindfulness

Mindfulness

To be mindful means to maintain an awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment in the present moment. Mindfulness also involves nonjudgmental acceptance of one’s thoughts and feelings without judging them, or being set on a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel. Being mindful allows us to pay attention to what we are sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.
