Reflection: mindfulness

Mindfulness involves focusing attention on the experience in the present moment as well as non-judgmental observation of that experience. Research has shown that mindfulness is a significant predictor of well-being.

It’s a technique that can be trained. The goal of a mindfulness intervention is to teach participants to become aware of physical sensations, thoughts & emotions and to relate them to an open, non-judgmental attitude.

It’s important to note that mindfulness is related to, but not equivalent to meditation. Although mindfulness is primarily associated with meditation, the range of practical mindfulness exercises extends far beyond the known meditation practice.
