Practicing mindfulness is bringing awareness to the present moment, intentionally, and without judgment. When we focus on each breath as it flows in and out, we are able to notice our thoughts without attaching to them. The simple practice of mindfulness helps create inner peace and relaxes the mind and body. Gratitude for the small pleasures in life and thinking positive thoughts go hand in hand with mindfulness. Look up at the sky, see the beauty in nature, the kindness in yourself and others, and enjoy being happy in each moment.
