What is Mindfulness?
To be mindful is to be fully aware in a given place, time, and situation. To be mindful is to focus on the awareness rather than on the thinking, judging, and interpreting that often accompanies awareness. To be mindful is ‘to be fully aware, in that one moment of time’. With this basic definition, it is clear that any activity can be accomplished mindfully. Yet, it is not easy to be mindful.
What is Mindful Meditation?
When learning to be more mindful during everyday activities, it helps to learn in steps. Mindful meditation is a process by which a person learns to apply their attention to a focus of attention, such as the breath, sounds, sights, and movement. From these practiced activities, a person learns to expand awareness and attention to include other activities, such as eating, communicating, and working. During mindfulness training, participants persistently practice the attitudes of non-judging, patience, trust, ‘beginners mind’, non-striving, acceptance, and letting go. Although the terms may sound foreign, basically they signal a new way of seeing and interacting with the world around you…in a manner than reduces stress. Through mindfulness meditation, one can slowly learn to increase concentration, focus, and insight.
