What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a state of nonjudgmental awareness of what’s happening in the present moment, including the awareness of one’s own thoughts, feelings, and senses. Over the past decade, mindfulness has worked its way into the world of mental health because of its many benefits to cognition and mental wellbeing.

The What Is Mindfulness? worksheet gives a simple introduction to the concept of mindfulness. In addition to defining mindfulness, this handout summarizes several research-supported benefits of mindfulness practice, and popular exercises to improve skills.
