Mindfulness means paying full attention to something. It means slowing down to really notice what you're doing. Being mindful is the opposite of rushing or multitasking. When you're mindful, you're taking your time. You are focusing in a relaxed, easy way.
Mindfulness teaches you to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both your mind and body. ... Techniques can vary, but in general, mindfulness meditation involves deep breathing and awareness of body and mind.
