What is mindfulness?

A question like, “What is mindfulness?”, is a great place to start. The truth is, like a lot of things, it doesn’t have just one interpretation and definition. It has many different forms.

Different styles have come to life from all parts of the globe throughout various periods in history.

The style that Mindfulness Mnemonics focuses on is called mnemonics.

What is stereotypically considered to be mindfulness?

One of the best ways to evaluate anything is to put it within the context of stereotypes. By doing that we can establish what the common components of a thing are.

So, things that are stereotypically linked to the subject, which means they pretty much fall into all interpretations of it, include:

  • Controlled breathing
  • Relaxation
  • Visualisation

How can it help me?

It can help people in a variety of ways., but perhaps the best way that it can be used is to help manage things like stress and anxiety.
