Mindfulness is popular and a very old practice. Science is now unpacking the benefits of mindfulness across many life areas. The idea of being present just where you are and just as you are is a liberating notion. And, it is also difficult to do. Minds don’t like being in the present. They prefer to dwell in the past and the future. You can see for yourself if that is mostly true of your experience. It sure is for me. Minds have a hard time being just where we are. But coming back to the present can be enormously beneficial. After all, that is where we are anyway. And the present is the only place we can act to impact our lives.
