Mindfulness could be defined as paying conscious attention to the present moment, in a non-judgemental manner'.
Mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism, but the modern form was developed by Dr Jon Kabat - Zinn at the University of Massachusetts, who developed a programme called Mindfulness - Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
It is now practised in many areas of society and is being increasingly recognised for it's benefits in the workplace, with positive effects on health, efficiency and productivity.
