Mindfulness can be described as the awareness that results from paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally (Kabat-Zinn, 2009).
Mindfulness is a mental technique which involves focusing the mind on an object, sound, prayer, breathing, or conscious thought, to increase our awareness of the present moment. (Barry, 2012, p. 73).
It is paying attention to one’s own ongoing experience in a way that allows openness and flexibility. (Compton & Hoffman, 2013, p. 90).
Mindfulness is being fully present and aware during our daily activities. (Compton & Hoffman, 2013, p. 90).
