Mindfulness is paying full attention to what is going on in the present moment. It means being aware of your thoughts, feelings, and surroundings instead of going through life on "autopilot." Mindfulness matters because it can help manage stress, anxiety, and depression. It has also been associated with a greater enthusiasm for life and improved self-esteem.
