Mindfulness is a heightened awareness that allows one to harness their attention and energy. Mindfulness can be used as an adjunct to your life when learned and practiced on its own.
The experience of Mindfulness is finding its place in medicine, mental health, relationship enhancement and work productivity. Mindfulness is useful in solving problems, but also has inherent value. If you never learn fully to be in the moment, you will remain a sleepy captive to every anxiety, fantasy , automatic reaction or mindset you possess. Mindful individuals learn how to slow or even stop the unseen drives and motivations that constantly keep us busy and over stimulated—a cultural condition that is extracting a cost on our health, well being and fulfillment.
