Mindfulness is a form of self-awareness training practice that is borrowed from Buddhist tradition. It encourages us to focus attention on the present moment in a non-judgmental way without being deflected. As mindfulness helps people cope with a wide variety of states such as depression, anxiety and physical conditions including chronic illness and pain, it is a key ingredient in a variety of evidence based psychotherapies including dialectical behavior therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy.[1] We often finds our minds ruminating about things that have already happened in the past or that could happen in the future, which can be often distressing. Mindfulness strengthen our ability to pay attention in the present moment, but also increases our awareness of how our minds fluctuate, often in unhelpful ways.[2]
