Minding your health

The word ‘mindfulness’ may refer to a form of meditation, a way of living with attention, and a foundation for psychotherapy.

Mindfulness is a mental discipline that involves training attention; but in its fullest sense, training in mindfulness also implies cultivating an open, non-reactive and accepting state of mind.

It teaches people how to use the mind in a different way and to focus on the things that are most useful and helpful in their lives, thus providing help for living more consciously and fully.
