"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally." ~ Jon Kabat-zinn
Secular Mindfulness practices was brought into the healthcare setting by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, in the late 1970s. Since then, Mindfulness has increasingly been adopted by various settings such as schools, workplace, prisons and courtrooms.
Mindfulness brings insights into how we relate to stress and to life, and allows us to see new choices for thought, outlook and action not previously available. Some benefits include: Reducing stress, improve sleep and concentration, enhance relationships, life satisfaction and wellbeing.
