What does it mean to be "Mindful"?
You must have heard of the practice of ‘Mindfulness’ from your friends, colleagues or social media. It is a popularly used word nowadays but not very well understood.
Mindfulness is an ancient practice that simply means being aware. When you bring awareness to what is happening in your life, right at that moment you are mindful! You can understand it by seeing it as being friends with yourself. Notice how you consciously make an effort to pay attention to your friend.
You make space for them. You make time. You listen carefully and patiently. You try to understand them! In the same way, when you pay attention to your present moment, make space for yourself, make time and listen carefully you are being mindful of your experiences.
