What is mindfulness?

Over the last year, mindfulness has become a popular word - everything seems to be about being mindful. What exactly is mindfulness and why is it important?

Mindfulness is something we all naturally possess. It is when you bring awareness to what you’re experiencing in the here and now rather then just being on auto-pilot. For example, when your mobile pings a new message, you take time to pause and breathe instead of responding immediately without thinking.

Here we look at 10 simple meditation techniques that will improve and personalize your techniques to maximize your meditation benefits.
