Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a term that is used a lot at the moment and that most people have heard, but many people are still not sure exactly what it is.

Put simply, mindfulness is the ability to pay attention to the present moment - our thoughts, feelings and emotions - and notice what we are experiencing as we experience it.
