Mindfulness is a practice of being fully present in the moment and consciously aware of your current surroundings; not what happened yesterday or what is going on tomorrow.
I used to be full of stress and often found myself chasing my tail, never really accomplishing anything. There always was something more important to do or to think about than what was going on that very moment- yet that moment is what really matters.
Mindfulness is simply focusing on your present state- where you are, what you’re doing, how you’re feeling. Being mindful increases peace, self-control, concentration, reduces anxiety, and can remedy sleep problems. Having a conscious mind also improves physical and mental health issues, creating an even more balanced, serene life.
