Mindfulness techniques have found new ground in consumerist societies and as a result, people are learning to be consciously in the moment, often for the first time in their lives. The truth of the matter is that mindfulness techniques have existed for centuries and many ways to engage have naturally developed. Good news: Most mindfulness techniques are either free and relatively easy to learn.
Mindfulness is being able to hold one’s conscious attention in the present moment. To anchor ourselves to the present moment, we may focus on anything from our breath to our thoughts to our emotions to the outside world to even the color blue. As there are many personalities, there are many ways to practice and achieve mindfulness. Each of these ways is worth a try until you discover the way that is easiest for you.
