Mindfulness is the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.

Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing awareness on the present moment while calmly acknowledging and accepting feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations.

Mindfulness is an effective tool for managing stress and living with mental illness. Mr. Cuddy will cover why being mindful is important and how to effectively achieve it in the modern world.
