MINDFULNESS involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them -- without believing. For instance, that there is a "right" or "wrong" way to think or feel at any given moment.
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.
Benefits to MINDFULNESS:
- Being present in the moment;
- Being effective in the moment (competence);
- Improved relationships;
- Healthy mind, body, heart and soul; and
- Happier quality of life.
“The practice of mindfulness begins in the small, remote cave of your unconscious mind and blossoms with the sunlight of your conscious life, reaching far beyond the people and places you can see.”
- Earon Davis, Author
