Definition: What actually is Mindfulness?

Being fully engaged with the present moment, purposefully paying attention with a non-judgmental and open mind.

Mindfulness is an everyday thing. When we engage with our hobbies, this usually connects us with our sense and brings us fully into the present moment. At work, when we pay full attention, we get ‘in the zone’. But it is also something that we can strengthen through practice.
