Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when we pay attention to our present moment experience with openness and curiosity. We all have this ability to come home to ourselves and find peace, even in the midst of stress and difficulty.
Just as we can strengthen the body and increase our physical endurance with regular exercise, the regular practice of mindful awareness is associated with beneficial changes in the brain that increase resilience, promote physical and mental well-being, and improve focus.

There are many ways to practice mindfulness, including sitting and walking meditation, yoga, art, and spending time in nature. We can also bring mindful awareness to daily activities such as: driving, listening to music, eating, and washing the dishes.
