Mindfulness is the practice of becoming more fully aware of the present moment, in a non-
judgmental way, rather than being preoccupied with intrusive thoughts, worries and concerns. It
involves practicing some basic techniques in order to heighten awareness of the senses (for
example, really noticing your breathing, feeling the sensations of your body), and being ‘in the now’.
Mindfulness has origins in Eastern philosophy and Buddhism. It has been used in the West
as a means of personal development for many years, and is now being increasingly taken up in psychological benefits in therapy and personal performance, as a stress management technique, and in education and professional development.
Mindfulness is developed through daily living. Any practice which helps to calm the inner thoughts,
silence our inner voice, and focus on the present moment can be used to develop mindfulness.
