What Is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the skill of non-judgmental present-moment awareness. It is something that gets stronger with training and practice. Meditation and yoga are two contemplative practices that strengthen your inborn capacity for mindfulness. Mindfulness incorporates the ideas of embodiment, and the sensory experience of life, as well as present-moment experience. It is perhaps these factors, as well as the non-judgmental character of mindfulness, that are responsible for its therapeutic value and growing popularity. Research shows that regular mindfulness practice leads to improvements in the quality of human life that are measurable, both qualitatively and quantitatively.
