A person enjoying peaceful time viewing nature
Mindfulness is the art of being present. 

According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of the mindfulness-based stress reduction program, being mindful is “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Through mindfulness, you are able to be aware of where you are and what you are doing and not be overly reactive or overwhelmed by what is going on around us.  All too often we get caught up in the daily stress of life, making you less productive, less successful, and ultimately less happy.
