     What is observe mindfulness and how can it help you? Our minds want to label what is happening rather than just being with the bare sensations of an experience. When practicing observing used as a mindfulness skill you are allowing your immediate experience to just happen without pushing it away or trying to change it. Overseeing you’re doing when you are doing it. Willingness is to be with what is having curiosity & kindness (Diana Winston) Paying attention, in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment without judgement (Jon Kabat-Zinn) Allow yourself to connect with energy and purpose within the natural world. Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in the present, and non-judgmentally, to the unfolding of experience moment by moment. – Jon Kabat-Zinn What Occupies your Attention?

    @Thanks123 - What a great description of mindfulness! I so agree - it's a remarkable tool! I find that it is very helpful in the face of emotions that we usually categorize as "negative." As you point out, mindfulness is all about nonjudgmental awareness and being able to see things like anxiety and sadness through a nonjudgmental lens supports acceptance of these experiences. This reduces our struggle and related suffering. Given that we can't make feelings go away, learning how to accept them is our best bet at finding a greater sense of peace.
