Mindfulness: What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness

What is mindfulness?  What’s the difference between meditation and mindfulness?

Here’s the bitesize answer!

Mindfulness IS meditation!  However, most people consider meditation to be the act of seated meditation (Zazen), where in reality meditation is simply “non-judgmental focus of one’s attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment.”

Mindfulness has now become the go to word to describe this same non-judgemental focus on every moment in every endeavour you do.  So, the toothbrush meditation is actually a form of mindfulness — you are paying absolute attention to what you are doing in the present moment.

Mindfulness in a few words:

Be in the present.
