Everyone is ‘doing it’; Oprah, the All Blacks , Navy Seals and Google – mindfulness!
Mindfulness essentially means moment-to-moment awareness. Although it originated in the Buddhist tradition, you don’t have to be Buddhist to reap its benefits.
When you are mindful, you become keenly aware of yourself and your surroundings by simply ‘observing’ these things as they are – without ‘charge’ or judgement. By not labeling or judging the events and circumstances taking place around you, you are freed from your normal tendency to react to them, reducing stress and overwhelm and heightening happiness!
