A Guide To Daily Mindfulness
When you find yourself feeling totally stressed out -- whether you are home, at the office, or on a train -- take time to stop, breathe, and ground yourself in the present moment. Mindfulness is a practice that has roots in Eastern Buddhism, but has become common practice in Western psychology. Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, a world-renowned scientist, writer and meditation teacher has been integral in bringing mindfulness to mainstream society and medicine. Kabat-Zinn defines being mindful as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” If you are being mindful, then you are existing on a moment-to-moment basis. You are not worrying about the past or the future. Here are tips that will help you become more mindful and less stressed.
