What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. It is a form of meditation that can be practiced in formal sitting meditation, as well as in daily activities such as walking, eating, or even washing dishes.
The practice of mindfulness has its roots in ancient Buddhist meditation practices, but has been adapted and incorporated into modern Western psychology. Research has shown that mindfulness can have a positive impact on mental and physical health, and can help reduce stress, improve mood, and increase well-being.
Mindfulness can be practiced in many ways, including guided meditations, body scans, and attending programs such as the mindfulness-based wellbeing enhancement (MBWE) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR).
It is often used in combination with other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavior therapy, to help individuals manage mental health conditions and improve their overall quality of life.
