Mindfulness - literally awareness is a very popular practice to fight stress, pay attention to the present moment and rediscover the wellbeing of mind and body.  

Born in the '70s thanks to Jon Kabat-Zinn - a researcher of molecular medicine - has found an increasing number of people who practice it to obtain benefits at different levels: 

> inner balance, 
harmony of thoughts, emotions, sensations,  
improved performance at school, work, and in sports.

According to Kabat-Zinn Mindfulness is the “awareness that emerges by paying attention, in the present moment and in a non-judgmental way, during the unfolding of the experience”. The here and now.

Thanks to the highlighted positive effects, it has attracted the interest of psychology and neuropsychology professionals, so much that in some countries – like Great Britain, the United States, and The Netherlands - is utilized as a support in cognitive psychotherapy for the treatments of certain psychological disorders, anxiety, mood swings and food disorders.

Recently, it has been included in children's school programs with a very positive result on their behavior and emotional reactivity.
The children are less anxious and impulsive, less critical towards themselves and others, and less under pressure and stress.

Mindfulness is good for everyone: adults, children, athletes, managers and an infinite number of people who love taking care of themselves. 
It has become a true trend, one that has created an important business, but it remains especially a way to rediscover wellbeing with oneself and in the relations with others.

Those who wish to increase the awareness of self and their capacity for empathy, memory and resistance to stress have now found a pleasant way to reach this wellness goal.

The most important thing - explains Marie Johansson of Oxford University's Mindfulness Centre - is to practice Mindfulness in a consistent and disciplined way, trusting trained professionals!
