Mindfulness is defined by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn as a process of paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally. Some of the empirically supported benefits of mindfulness meditation include: decreases in stress, anxiety, depression, emotional reactivity, and increases in relationship satisfaction, cognitive flexibility, focus, and working memory.
