Mindfulness is becoming more and more popular and it is considered to be a very relevant and important tool that can help us find our way in an increasingly complicated world.
Contrary to what many may believe, mindfulness is NOT about escaping reality and find refuge in a fantasy world. Quite the opposite, it is about being present in the moment, it is about focus.
The idea of mindfulness is rooted in ancient Buddhist traditions and it is relevant today more than ever, as we keep being distracted by different stimuli all competing for our attention.
Dealing with too many stimuli at the same time can be quite stressful. Mindfulness, through the practice of focus, brings us back to concentrate on what is important on any given moment.
