Mindfulness is essentially allowing yourself to be fully
present in the here and now.
Sometimes we can put huge amounts of pressure on ourselves to get everything just right, and work against what is appearing in
our daily experience with busy mind chatter or distraction. 
Being mindful means just allowing whatever to come up…. to come up and gently bringing your attention to it. 
You don’t necessarily need to be sitting down or being still, you can adopt mindfulness when you’re eating, walking, even brushing your teeth in the morning. It can be helpful to give ourselves permission to just be in each moment as it arises. Just noticing and letting it be.
