Defining Mindfulness
Mindfulness is similar to meditation which also strives to achieve a similar state of mind. Mindfulness can be defined to be an effort to pay attention to the present moment without judging yourself, others or anything else around you. It is an effort to make your mind stay focused on the present moment.

There are certain features of mindfulness which help one to achieve the desired state of mind:
• When you practice mindfulness you try to pay attention to things around you or a particular physical activity that you are doing
• You do not allow your mind to wander to other thoughts and gently bring it back to focus on the present moment
• You pay attention to your own breath or to the noises around you without judging
• You allow the present moment to be experienced in whole without any judgement clouding your senses or your mind

In such ways, mindfulness can be defined. Indeed, it is a simple act which has several benefits over the mind and body which ancient sages and Buddha himself had achieved. It is the first step to meditation whereon one can go to higher levels into one’s subconscious. Mindfulness is the first step towards meditation and a way to calm the mind and to help oneself to relax and de stress.
