The quality or state of being conscious or aware of something
Being mindful makes it easier to appreciate the pleasures life has to offer, bolsters your ability to be fully engaged in your actions, and improves your resiliency to deal with difficult situations. Practicing mindfulness does not only mean practicing meditation. We can practice mindfulness by allowing ourselves to feel emotion and vulnerability without shame, by paying attention to the passing world and finding peace with it, or even by reflecting on the day that has passed. There are tons of other ways to become a mindful person, you just have to find what works for you.
Mindfulness and Health
Scientists have determined that mindfulness exercises assist with improved physical health in several ways. For instance, mindfulness improves mental health. In recent years, psychotherapists have turned to mindfulness meditation as an important element in the treatment of a number of problems, including: depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, couples’ conflicts, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. A study on present-moment awareness discovered that mindfulness makes daily stressors easier to handle. Another study found evidence that mindfulness caused less conflict avoiding and more confidence as a response to stress than relaxation or self-affirmation methods. Mindfulness can also help alleviate stress by improving emotion regulation, leading to a better mood and better ability to handle stress.
