Mindfulness has been variously defined as “bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis”, ”paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally”, ”a kind of nonelaborative, nonjudgmental, present-centered awareness in which each thought, feeling, or sensation that arises in the attentional field is acknowledged and accepted as it is.”
