What is Mindfulness?
What is mindfulness? Recently, a lot of talk about this stress reduction practice has been popping up in popular culture. From mindfulness retreats to mindfulness yoga, this practice seems to be everywhere. Is this just a fad or is there some kind of scientific validity to mindfulness? Theories in positive psychology have examined mindful living and found positive correlations between it and happiness and wellbeing.
Other studies have found that individuals who partook in mindfulness for health actually saw benefits and positive outcomes in their lifestyle. Mindfulness is defined as being conscious of the present moment.
