"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally." (Jon Kabat-Zinn, 1994)
Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing our attention to what is happening in our thoughts, emotions and bodies in the present moment – as they are occurring – without immediately reacting to them and trying to fix, change, judge or avoid them. When we use a Mindful approach, we develop the capacity to observe events with greater awareness, and with an attitude of openness, exploration, curiosity and acceptance. When we are Mindful, we do not impulsively ‘react'; instead, we consciously ‘respond’ to life’s events as they arise.When practiced diligently and correctly, mindfulness has been proven by clinical studies to alleviate a host of physical and mental problems. For this reason, mindfulness programs have been adapted for use in hospitals, schools, workplaces and numerous other environments.
