WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
There is no short answer for this. It is simply paying attention, in the present moment and being aware of the now. That’s Amy’s short answer. For me, it is all about the breath. The sanctuary of the breath. When we pay attention to the rising and falling of our breaths, it takes us out of our minds (where we spend way too much time!) and harnesses us constantly back to the present moment. Yes, mindful meditation can be your own daily holiday from thinking, thinking, thinking. It’s worth exploring, that is for sure.
Jon Kabat-Zinn says “Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in a particular, in the present moment, non-judgementally.”
