Mindfulness is another skill that can help us manage stress and improve our mental health. Mindfulness simply involves being aware of our experience in the present moment. This includes having awareness of things in our inner (e.g., thoughts, feelings) and outer (e.g., environment, people around us) worlds. In other words, being mindful means having a clear idea of what we are doing, where we are, and how we are feeling. 

The opposite of being mindful is being mindless, which involves having very little awareness of what’s going on in the here and now. This occurs when our mind wanders to the past or worries about the future. If you’re like most people, your mind will do this a lot. Mindfulness is therefore a skill that requires regular practice. If you practice mindfulness on a daily basis, you’ll be able to draw on it when your thoughts and feelings become overwhelming.
