Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
🌸It can be cultivated through techniques, particularly seated, walking, standing, and moving meditation; short pauses we insert into everyday life; and merging meditation practice with other activities, such as yoga or sports.
🌸Everyone can benefit and it’s easy to learn.
🌸It brings awareness and caring into everything we do—and it reduces stress.
🌸It has positive benefits for our health, happiness, work, and relationships.
