Mindfulness is about observation without criticism; being compassionate with yourself.

 

Scientific studies have shown that mindfulness not only prevents depression but also has a positive effect on brain patterns that cause daily anxiety, stress, depression, and irritability,  mood changes so that when they occur, they dissolve again more easily.

We can all be mindful, this is our innate capacity, but mindfulness needs to be practiced and cultivated, because the power of our autopilot is great and it quickly pulls us away from the present moment from the here and now into the past or future.

Mindfulness is a practice and a way of being and showing up in your life for whatever arises with an open heart and friendly attention.
