What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and be a bit less overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. Mindfulness is a quality that every human being already possesses. It’s not something you have to conjure up, you just have to learn how to access it. Being mindful isn’t something you strive to be. It’s something you train to do.
