“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”
This is the classic definition of Mindfulness given by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Kabat-Zinn is credited with bringing Mindfulness to the West. Although Mindfulness originates from Buddhist philosophy, it is not a religious practice. There are several elements to Mindfulness that can be quite subtle. With practice, we learn how to step out of autopilot and make more skilful decisions. Mindfulness, therefore, can help us to be less reactive to the world around us and make us feel calmer, more in control and happier. This has been proven in many research studies.
