Mindfulness can be defined as 'paying attention on purpose moment by moment without judging' (Full Catastrophe Living, Jon Kabat-Zinn). This means learning to pay attention to our experience from moment to moment in a non -judgemental way. Mindfulness training increases awareness of our thoughts, feelings and sensations at that particular time. Mindfulness does not conflict with any beliefs, religious or cultural affliations.
Mindfulness is based on ancient Buddhist practices and is taught through meditation skills. Through simple practices such as observing the breath or focussing on a particular bodily sensation we can learn to be in the present moment. Learning to control our focus of attention and accept ourselves and our situation as they are can help us to deal better with life's stresses, worries about the past and anxieties about the future.
The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has named Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) as an effective approach for people who have suffered from depression.
