What is Mindfulness?


Mindfulness is a technique you can learn which involves making a special effort to notice what's happening in the present moment (in your mind, body and surroundings) – without judging anything. It has roots in Buddhism and meditation, but you don't have to be spiritual, or have any particular beliefs, to try it.


It aims to help you:



  • become more self-aware

  • feel calmer and less stressed

  • feel more able to choose how to respond to your thoughts and feelings

  • cope with difficult or unhelpful thoughts

  • be kinder towards yourself.
