Mindfulness is one of the therapies being recommended by the NHS to help manage the high levels of stress caused by the pandemic.
So what is it? In simple terms, it means paying attention to what’s happening in the present moment in the mind, body and external environment, with an attitude of curiosity and kindness. It is typically cultivated by a range of simple meditation practices, which aim to bring a greater awareness of thinking, feeling and behaviour patterns, and to develop the capacity to manage these with greater skill and compassion.
