- attentive, aware, or careful

- the quality or state of being mindful
- the practice of maintaining a nonjudgemental state of heightened or complete awarenesss of one’s thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis
through my yin yoga practice over the last few years i have truly learned mindfulness. in those minutes, in that hour, i can truly focus on my breath while thoughts come into and out of my mind without judgement of myself or others.
in those moments i feel whole, confident, and content.
when i miss those practices because i let other things get in the way i feel it in all aspects of my life.
however, i should not let missing those yoga classes affect my mindfulness practice…mindfulness can be practiced without yoga.
mindfulness can be practiced every day.
as best you can.
