Wikipedia defines mindfulness is the practice of purposely bringing one's attention to the present-moment experience without evaluation, a skill one develops through meditation or other training.
Mindfulness is a gentle, kind and compassionate moment-to-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, body sensations, and the surrounding people & environment.
Mindfulness involves paying attention to our thoughts and feelings without judgement or labelling them as “right” or “wrong” in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, we remain in the present moment rather than looking back at our past, or imagining the future. When we dwell on past events, you may feel depressed and when we think too much about the future, you may start to feel anxious.
