Mindfulness is the state of being conscious or aware, it is a mental state usually achieved by focusing on breath and the present moment. One becomes aware of feelings, thoughts, bodily sensations and environment without applying any judgement around them. Much research and many studies show us that the physical,psychological and social benefits of practicing mindfulness are many.
