What Mindfulness Involves
Mindfulness is the ability to be fully attentive to the present moment, rather than worried about what is going on outside of the present. Mindfulness-based groups teach people to become aware of the present by utilizing techniques like yoga and meditation. In groups, a mindfulness clinician provides training in meditation and related techniques like focusing on the breath, as well as education about the benefits of mindfulness and how it can be applied to daily life.
