Mindfulness is a psychological process bringing about a purposeful state of concentrated attention on some object of thought or awareness, without judgement. It usually involves turning attention inward to a single point of reference.
Mindfulness can be developed through practices like meditation that emphasize the development of a high degree of mental concentration and mental quiescence. Increased awareness of the present moment can help develop self understanding and enhance the enjoyment of the world around us.
This process is effective for stress management and may promote good self esteem, self acceptance and an inner sense of calm.
