Jon Kabat-Zinn defines “What is mindfulness?” and gives us some simple explanations for practicing it . Paying attention is the key.
“..) paying attention to what you might ask? Well it doesn’t actually matter, it’s the attending itself that’s important more important than what it is that you’re paying attention”.
“(…) mindfulness is not a technique although there are many many different ways to cultivate mindfulness. It’s actually a way of being, being embodied, being in some sense in equilibrium with the comings and goings of the outer world and even the comings and goings and the ups and downs of having a body”.
