The Most Inspiring Mindfulness Quotes
We all need a boost from time to time. While it may be tempting to brew another pot of coffee, sometimes all we need is a dose of positive thinking.
Mindfulness is the ability to be fully in the present moment, allowing yourself to be aware of what surrounds you without being affected by it. Even though mindfulness is practiced by meditating, they don’t mean the same thing. Mindfulness means to be in the present moment, fully immersed in the current activity; it’s something we can practice at any moment.

Meditations for Mindfulness
Like any other skill, mindfulness requires practice through meditation techniques––mantra meditation, focusing on the breath, or guided meditation to name a few. Once focus is developed, it can be applied to everyday life and any activity–– work, play, or rest.
Meditation practice can help you achieve mindfulness. Meditation is more than just a quiet, feel-good activity. Research demonstrates that meditation helps reduce anxiety, depression, and stress. By carving out some quiet time during the day or before bed to listen to a guided meditation, you can break the patterns of stress that interfere with sleep and get back on the road to deep, rejuvenating rest.
