Mindfulness & Well-Being

Mindfulness is a state of bringing ones attention in the present moment what they are experiencing. Mindlessness pervades much of human activity. We act and interact automatically, without much thinking. Mindful attention to the present moment can be developed through meditation and mindfulness based therapies. Through mindfulness we can focus our perspective and sharpen our experience of the present moment. It originates in Buddhism, but being mindful is an ability that anybody can study. For that the person does not have to be spiritual, or have any particular beliefs, to try it. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is a methodology towards psychotherapy, which was initially formed as a relapse-prevention treatment for depression. Mindfulness practice is being employed to reduce depression symptoms, to reduce stress, anxiety, and in the treatment of drug addiction.
