What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is based on an Eastern meditation tradition but is not dependent on any belief or ideology.It is about being aware of what is happening in the present on a moment-by-moment basis.It is contrasted with states of mind in which attention is focussed elsewhere e.g. pre-occupation with memories, fantasies, plans or worries, and behaving automatically without awareness of your actions. It includes a sense of approaching all experiences with openness and kindly curiosity, rather than avoiding difficult experiences or judging them or us.
