Mindfulness is the ability to be aware of the current moment and engage non-judgmentally with our thoughts emotions,and experiences.
The opposite of Mindfulness is Mindlessness. Mindlessness can be seen as unawareness, being in autopilot, or attaching to every thought and emotions that comes to us.
Engaging mindfully in life allows for full purposeful experiences. It gives the strength to accept challenges, persevere, and appreciate life.
Development of a personal mindfulness practice in and out of therapy can impact stress, happiness, and sense of self.
