Mindfulness Meditation has of late generated a lot of interest. Originally inspired by the Buddhist way of life and its spiritual undertones, mindfulness is gaining momentum and is being increasingly used in the coaching practices of Life Coaches as well as Positive Psychology coaches. Before considering its impact, let us understand what mindfulness is. The very concept of meditation has been eastern, where the effective way of meditating had everything to do with “moments where one empties her mind and get connected to a divine consciousness”. The philosophy of Mindfulness, on the other hand, is all about being fully aware of the current moment, where your mind is still “full” and not “emptied”. Hence, mindfulness is all about focusing on the present moment, with the mind fully aware of what is happening.
