Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to one’s own mind, inviting oneself to be in the present moment without judgement. The intention behind mindful awareness is to bring ones focus into the present moment, increase awareness of breath and body in effort to quiet the mind and increase overall mental and physical wellbeing. This concept might sound easy, however it can be very challenging.

A mindfulness practice often consists of breath awareness, meditative movement and/or guided visualizations. There are numerous benefits to a mindfulness practice. People have been practicing mindfulness for centuries as part of various spiritual practices. The medical community, after many years of research, recognizes the positive benefits of breath awareness and mindfulness to address emotional, mental and physical ailments.
