Being Mindful

Being Mindful

It is easy to get caught up the busyness of everyday life.  With the various responsibilities, a moment of quiet may be difficult to achieve.  This chaotic and rushed mindset decreases a person’s awareness of the here-and-now.  Mindfulness is a practice by which an individual can become reconnected with his or her current experiences.  This act is intentional where one increases awareness in the present moment without judgment (Brown, Marquis, & Guiffrida, 2013).  Removing this judgment and increasing kindness toward self, the individual can engage in the present moment in an intentional manner.
