What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is about freeing yourself from self-judgement. It is an effective toolkit for nourishing yourself both physically, mentally and emotionally.
You don’t have to sit a certain way or remember any particular mantra. It is simply about accepting yourself as you are in the present moment, and observing the thoughts that arise as you sit, lie or stand in stillness, letting them pass without judgment. Spending just 5 or 10 minutes per day practicing mindfulness is all that you need to see its effects.
