Mindfulness is partially about present moment awareness. It involves focusing on the ‘now’ while acknowledging other thoughts but not judging them. One of the best ways to start is to focus on the breath. Placing your hand on your stomach to feel it rise and fall as you take slow breaths in through your nose and out through your nose or mouth is available to anyone. If thoughts come into awareness, simply acknowledge them and then turn back to your breath. It does take practice, but the more you practice, the better you will become. Mindfulness is helpful for stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
