Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens. Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there is a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment.
Some things to remember when practicing mindfulness are:
- There is no way to quiet your mind. Quieting your mind is not the goal. The goal is to be aware of your mind.
- Your mind will wander. It’s okay for your mind to wander.
- Use your breath as an anchor to the present moment.
