Mindfulness refers to a set of psychological skills that allow people to be more in touch with the present moment, and to be able to handle negative thoughts and feelings more skillfully. Based on the premise that distress results from one’s reactive relationship to experience, the core skills are learning how to bring awareness to the present moment, and observe experiences with an attitude of acceptance and without judgement. Although mindfulness has only recently been incorporated into Western psychology, it is an ancient practice found in a wide range of Eastern philosophies, including Buddhism, and Yoga.
