Mindfulness is increasingly being utilised in therapeutic settings for depression and anxiety and integrated in treatments for chronic pain and insomnia. Mindfulness teaches us to direct our attention to what is happening in the here and now with an attitude of acceptance towards our experience and ourselves. Mindfulness teaches us the capacity to be present.
