Basically, through the techniques and practices of mindfulness and meditation, our mind will no longer dragged around with thoughts so often.
We achieve some detachment from this confusion by focusing on the present moment. With the practice of this focus, our ability to concentrate grows.
We will become more capable of being an “observer participant” of our reality.
Everything will become more simple but also more complex, or rather, more complete.

In the process of opening our conscience, other elements become important to deepen our approach to reality.
The reality, in addition to being observed for us, also needs to be felt by ourselves, we need to cultivate this ability to also feel reality so that we can understand it in all its fullness.

In Jon Kabat-Zinn words:
“Mindfulness is the awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.”
With that in mind (or rather, in heart), the 9 Attitudes of Mindfulness formulated by Jon Kabat Zinn can be especially important for cultivating mindfulness in our daily lives.
