What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness means paying full attention to something. It means slowing down to really notice what you’re doing.
Being mindful is the opposite of rushing or multitasking. When you’re mindful, you’re taking your time. You’re focusing in a relaxed, easy way.
Mindfulness has been shown to have huge benefits for everyone, especially students:
- Increase focus and attention
