A Mindful Life

A Mindful Life

By Dr. C Eric Torres and Margarita Borda, LMHC

We find the word “Mindfulness” in the front page of magazines, brochures about wellness and in the practice of meditation. But what is Mindfulness?

 

Mindfulness is the ability to hold on to the awareness of present experience with acceptance. This ability is achieved when we are able to bring one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis without the influence of past experience or future expectation.

 

 When we are mindful we intentionally bring our attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment. This awareness helps us to manage pleasant and unpleasant thoughts and feelings safely, become aware of what we are avoiding, less judgmental and more connected to yourself and

the world around you, according to research.
