Mindfulness is about being in the present and noticing what we are experiencing in on open, non-judgemental way. The techniques of Mindfulness practice train the mind to be relaxed and open in the presence of all experiences. Pleasant experiences like delicious food or beautiful scenery becomes more enjoyable as we learn to be more present with life. Unpleasant experiences like pain and tend to be less stressful and less dominating.
