Being mindful can be a common and easy to understand topic, while on the other hand it can be confusing and intimidating for some folks. So, let’s clear the air first.
What is Mindfulness
Mindfulness is the psychological or cognitive process of bringing one’s attention to the external and internal experience in the present moment.
Mindfulness is focusing on what’s happening inside of you and you in relation to the external stimuli, so it’s about observing what’s happening inside, not being judgmental.
What is Mindfulness?
The state of being mindful can be developed through the practice of meditation, mindfulness exercises and other training. The popular mindfulness movement was initiated by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Here’s a video with Jon Kabat-Zinn explaining the notion of mindfulness.

How To Actually Practice Mindfulness & Conquer Your Emotions
Leo is very talented at explaining things. So, watch the following video to learn how to apply mindfulness in your day-to-day life, outside of meditation, to raise your self-awareness and your self-control.
Leo from actualized.org defines mindfulness simply as being in the moment while you observe yourself.
Its power is in focusing your attention on what’s presently taking place within your own body, without judging it.
He notes that it is incredibly difficult to maintain attention to anything more than a few seconds, without substantial practice of the skill. The best way to practice is to start to be mindful of a few simple things that happen daily: when you walk in a certain street, or every time you perform a routine task.
