Mindfulness is now recognized as a powerful tool for dealing with stress, chronic pain, and many other medical and psychological conditions.
Mindfulness is about paying attention and is a way of being more deeply present to your body, your thoughts, and your emotions. It involves learning to work with what’s already here, in a less reactive, less judgmental way. It’s about living your life in the richness of right now, not being lost in memories of the past or overwhelmed by the worries or projections of the future.
