Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present in the moment. Given that there are many ways to do that, achieving mindfulness is really the art of bringing your awareness into the present moment.
Mindfulness is the awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally .... in the service of self-understanding and wisdom. — Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine.
