So, how exactly is mindfulness practiced?

At a basic level, mindfulness is simply increased awareness and noticing. Taking time throughout your day to notice your body and sensations, thoughts, emotions, and the world around you.
Mindfulness can be practiced for a moment’s time by pausing to notice the sensation of your breath entering and leaving your body. Or, it can be incorporated into your day, by being especially aware of your thoughts and feelings and observe what’s happening around you and the impact on your feeling or thinking. It may also be immersing yourself for a moment, for 10 minutes, or for an hour, just be fully present in the moment - fully present in your life.
