Mindfulness is a state of awareness that involves intentionally paying attention to the present moment. It allows us to become a nonjudgmental observer of our thoughts and feelings and release them, rather than cling to them. Mindfulness can enhance our ability to cope with distress, improve our attention, and promote connection in our relationships.
