A mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

Mindfulness is focusing awareness on the present moment and acknowledging and accepting the experiences without judgement. The study of Mindfullness is not a theoretical but an experimental study. As the capacity to witness one’s self deepened by regular application of mindfulness, positive affect and vitality increase, negative emotions as hate and stress are effectively managed and awareness in communication is enhanced. Individuals who can well manage stress in their inner world experience increased concentration and can establish a less burdened relationship with the external world.
