Mindfulness is a simple but radical approach to living. With mindfulness one becomes more aware and accepting and gaining mastery over experiences by paying attention, noticing one’s breath and being more present in the moment, as opposed to living for the moment. Mindfulness is a nonjudgmental approach that involves acceptance and dedicating special attention to one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is about attending to one’s biological rhythms while learning the differences between those rhythms and emotionally driven, short-term desires. Mindfulness is about changing one’s relationship to the body and emotions so one can fully experience any given situation as well as improve performance in demanding situations.
