Mindfulness is one of those words that you hear everywhere nowadays.  What is mindfulness and why should you practice it?

Mindfulness can be described as engaging in activity designed to help you attain calmness and peace. These can include yoga, tai chi and meditation.  Mindfulness requires you to slow down and focus on the present.  Any activity can become a mindfulness activity if you focus on the present and allow yourself to be completely immersed in that activity.  Anything from coloring to cleaning can be mindful when done with attention and focus.

Mindfulness is great because it leads to mental equanimity.  This means that we are better able to handle stressful situations without becoming overly stressed out.  When things get tough we can calmly thing through the situation and develop a response instead of having a quick reaction.
