What is Mindfulness?

 

Mindfulness is about being awake and alive in the present moment.  With mindfulness, we learn to release troubling thoughts of the past and worrying thoughts about the future.  We stop running our lives on autopilot.  With mindfulness, we taste what we eat. We hear the noises around us.  We see what we are looking at, and we see ourselves and others more clearly.  With mindfulness, we recognize how thoughts and emotions affect the body.  We recognize harmful recurring thoughts and gradually see them become less prevalent in our thinking.  We gain tools to move toward difficulties rather than run away from them.  With mindfulness, we cope better with stress and chronic pain.  Gradually, it improves our concentration, our ability to focus, and increases our overall stability.  This is not something we can learn from books and lectures but, rather, from experience, using meditation and yoga practice, to reduce stress and improve quality of life.
