The wedding next weekend, your dad’s birthday in 2 weeks, and all the little daily to-dos can make living in the present moment challenging. This exact reason is why the practice of mindfulness has become so popular. So what exactly is mindfulness? It is the act of consciously focusing your mind on the present moment without judgment and without attachment to the moment. It can help us become more aware of what is going on for us internally and externally. We become more present with the “right now”.
Why be mindful? Mindfulness practices can help us to increase our ability to regulate emotions, and decrease stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also help us to focus our attention, as well as to observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment. As we become more present in our lives and in relation to others, it can help us to make better decisions, manage our emotions, and be more fully engaged in life.
