Mindfulness is the art of being present and aware of what's happening right here and now in a non-judgemental way. There are many different ways to be mindful, so you can find the method that works best for you.
Stress, worries or feelings of anxiety can get in the way of doing what you want or need to do. Mindfulness tools and strategies can help you manage and overcome those obstacles.
