Mindfulness in my experience is the art of self compassion through awareness of our breath, mind body and the present moment. Awareness without judgement.
Mindfulness living is applying this awareness into our daily lives wherever we are.
Benefits of mindfulness:
Boosts to working memory
Less emotional reactivity
More cognitive flexibility
(What are the benefits of Mindfulness, from American Psychology Association.
“If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh, Being Peace
