What is Mindfulness?
Just as we exercise our bodies to optimize our health, establishing a mindfulness practice helps to regulate our mental and emotional wellness. The dictionary defines mindfulness as "a way of training your mind to concentrate on the present, to feel calm and improve your mental state." Being present—not worrying about the future nor regretting the past—sounds lovely, but it takes practice to learn how to do it. The benefits of doing so, however, are many!
