What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness refers to simply being aware of your thoughts and emotions as you go through your life and the daily tasks that are a part of it. It’s about staying in the moment — you are present and truly observing the tiny things that mean so much.
Once you become aware of mindfulness, you can begin to identify little ways to practice it throughout the day. All it really takes is the consciousness to pause and take a moment to really see, feel, hear … use all the senses you can to take in that particular moment.
