(Jon Kabat-Zinn, 1990) Or, as stated in Mindfulness Nation UK’s annual report, “mindfulness 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.” (Mindful Nation UK, 2015) Mindfulness meditation is one of the methodologies for meditation. It is broadly defined as practicing nonjudgmental attention to experiences in the present moment, or “practicing being.” It is advised for meditators to either sit or lie still while observing rather than controlling their breathing. The only thing that is required of meditators is for them to simply accept, note, and let go of their thoughts and feelings as they divert their attention.
