What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness looks and sounds like:

  • I became immersed in the moment by focusing on my senses
  • I appreciated and was grateful for the good things in my life, my relationships and my learning
  • I understood how my body felt when I was anxious, angry, upset or overwhelmed
  • I let a negative thought pass through my mind instead of letting it control my thinking
  • I knew when it was time to give myself some time out from what i was doing
  • I was consciously aware of how i was feeling
  • I felt how my controlled breathing calmed my body
