Mindfulness can be described as paying attention, in a particular way, with an attitude of compassionate or friendly non-judgment, with the intention of increasing one's capacity for awareness in the present moment.
- Rhonda Magee
Studies have shown that over time mindfulness practices can do many wonderful things, such as:
Try 10 minutes of meditation a day and notice the difference in your life.
Do what you can! Incorporate 1 minute of time each morning, lunch break, and evening, to sit up tall and connect with your breath*.
*Note: the breath is not always a suitable anchor. Instead, you may shift your focus to what you feel, smell, or hear, or perhaps a phrase, such as "I am" or "one".
