Mindfulness is a technique/skill that can help to reduce the intensity of difficult emotions or thoughts we are experiencing, by allowing our brain to refocus its attention on what is going on around us, at that present moment.
Mindfulness focuses on being in the “here and now” rather than our mind running away, thinking about the past or the future.
