Mindfulness

Mindfulness is paying attention: on purpose, in the present moment (not past or future), and in a non-judgemental way.

“Mindfulness is a state and not a trait. While it might be promoted by certain practices or activities, such as meditation, it is not equivalent to or synonymous with them.”

(American Psychological Association)

“The awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.”

(Kabat-Zinn)
