Mindfulness – a definition


the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.
“their mindfulness of the wider cinematic tradition”
a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

Sounds pretty lofty, doesn’t it?  Imagine trying to “calmly” acknowledge and accept one’s feelings.  Gee, really?  But my smart phone is ringing, the kids gotta get up for school, my boss is texting me about today’s crisis (at 7 am? – does she even ever sleep??)

Here’s the shorter definition.  Stop.  Breathe.  Repeat.

That’s it.  Just be.
