 Mindfulness Sheet

"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way. It is paying attention to our experience on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgement." – Jon Kabat-Zinn

Once you purposely focus on your breath and the physical sensations in your body, you can become fully aware of the emotions you are feeling in the present moment. You can then treat yourself in an accepting and kind way regardless of your experience.

By paying attention in this way, you can make decisions with both rational thoughts and emotions.
