What is Mindfulness?

But what exactly is Mindfulness?!

Many people think that the practice of mindfulness only happens while in meditation, or that meditation and mindfulness are the same but that is just not true!

Mindfulness is all about bringing your attention to the present moment, and experiencing life right now, as it happens, whatever you are doing!

It is about using your senses, slowing down, and really taking your time.

It is about patience, growth and connecting to nature, animals and those beautiful humans around you.
