Mindfulness is everywhere these days, but what does it mean to be mindful? At its core, mindfulness is about staying in the present moment, noticing thoughts and sensations but viewing them without judgement or reacting without consideration. The simple act of pausing to reflect rather than react is in self-help guides, retreats, even workplaces and school. In this issue of Visions, learn what mindfulness is (and is not), how mindfulness might help, read how other people have tailored the principles of mindfulness to fit their own perspectives and needs, test out mindfulness activities, and find strategies to help you build mindfulness into your own daily routine.
