What is Mindfulness?
Put most simply, mindfulness is a way to train the mind, and become more present in our body. Most of the time, our minds are wandering — we’re thinking about the future, dwelling on the past, worrying, fantasizing, fretting or daydreaming. Mindfulness brings us back to the present moment, and gives us the tools we need to be less stressed, calmer and kinder to ourselves and others.
