Mindfulness is a way of behaving and believing which encourages people to focus on the present moment. During mindfulness exercises you are required to make an effort to be conscious of your whole self at the present moment — where you are, how you feel, what you are doing, your surroundings, your feelings, your thoughts — all at this precise moment. You are encouraged to declutter your mind as you relax and let yourself sink into a peaceful state.
By practising mindfulness, you stop thinking about what happened previously or what might happen in the future — you practise mindful living and direct your attention to what is happening now. It encourages people to calm down, breathe deeply, and focus on the present moment. The result is a calm mind and body.
