But first… what is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is having a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and experiences without judgment. It is taking a closer look at the right here and right now. A well-known researcher in this field, Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, has stated that mindfulness is, “the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally” (2015).
