Mindfulness, which usually translates as "Full Attention," is a continuous practice of relaxation that teaches us to become fully aware, without prejudice, of oneself.
Through meditation and breath awareness, we attend to our emotions, thoughts and sensations that occur in the present, here and now, without thinking about the past or future.
Mindfulness arrives in the West on the 70s by the hand of Jon Kabat-Zinn, a specialist in molecular biology. Surprised with the results of the Buddhist monks' meditation, he adapted it to the way of life of the West, called it Mindfulness and founded the Stress Reduction Clinic at the Medical Center of the University of Masachusets.
Mindfulness is one of the techniques that have shown greater efficacy in the treatment of people's stress.
