Mindfulness is a mental state that promotes awareness of the present moment. Mindfulness is supported by a non-judgmental attitude towards our own experience and promotes the development of kindness and self-compassion.
Mindfulness can be cultivated through formal and informal practices such as meditation or by simply paying full attention to what you are doing in any given moment.
Mindfulness allows us to achieve higher levels of physical and psychological wellbeing and it can be learnt to support our mental health or simply to learn how to enjoy life to the fullest. The benefits of mindfulness are supported by a great corpus of scientific literature and neuro-psychological studies.
Mindfulness for individuals
