Mindfulness. What is it? How does it help? The concept of mindfulness or living consciously in the moment is that of awareness – being aware of what all parts of your body and your mind are doing in any given moment. It means being fully attentive to what you are doing and where you are. And then the body and mind are in sync. By directing your awareness to your body and what it is doing you reduce all the confusing mindtalk which is full of doubt and full of anxiety about the future. You focus on the present. This simplifies life and relaxes you. It allows you to give 100% to you as well as to what you are doing. You then live fully in the moment.
