What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the act of being fully present in the moment. It is a practice, the practice of tuning into the here and now. When we focus on centering our thoughts to the present moment, there are many benefits. It helps us to be kind and gentle with self. It greatly impacts our ability to be aware of what we need. When we feel more calm, focused and connected, it helps to be more aware of self and others around us.

Tuning into Our Senses

How can we practice mindfulness? One way is to check in with our senses- hear, see, feel, taste, and smell. This can help us pay attention to the present moment, what is happening for us right now. Be curious! And gentle with yourself as you practice this.
