¿ WHAT IS MINDFULNESS ?


Mindfulness is a simple and very powerful practice of training our attention. It’s really just about paying attention to the present moment and experiences; breath, thoughts, emotions, body sensations and the surrounding environment without immediately reacting to them and with an attitude of acceptance, interest and curiosity. Is the ability to be aware of all the processes that arise in every moment of our life, internal and external, Here and Now.
 
The brain generates thoughts and emotions continually manifested in the mind and body. Sometimes they are so strong that drag us. Mindfulness practice helps us to create a space between us and the thoughts and emotions, allowing them not to react impulsively but to respond consciously. 

There are different techniques to practice mindfulness. All have in common the search for an anchor point to go back when our attention starts to wander, usually the breath or body sensations. Every time the mind tends to wander and "off" of that element, the individual must re-focus on it. This practice allows attention to be increasingly stable and experience less frequent distractions.




ORIGIN


The origin of Mindfulness is rooted in Buddhist philosophy and practice tradition more than 2500 years old. It is an effective practice without any religious context of Buddhism, and is often taught as a non-sectarian practice in the West.

The most famous internationally protocol based on Mindfulness is Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), it was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in the United States, to help people with a wide range of physical and mental health problems.

The teaching of MBSR has been extensively developed in hospitals and clinics for staff, medical students and patients, also in companies, law firms, universities, schools and government agencies. Evidence-based research shows MBSR to be effective in helping chronic pain and fatigue, depression, anxiety, life stress, psoriasis, cancer amongst many other conditions, and it also provides a framework in supporting self-care.
