What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a simple practice which encourages individuals to be in the present moment. Therefore it is not about thinking about yesterday, or thinking about tomorrow. Instead it is thinking about the present moment of the here and now. Mindfulness is a practice which encourages individuals to get in touch with their senses and to notice their thoughts. The theory of mindfulness is simple however because it is a different way of thinking it takes a lot of practice.
