What is mindfulness?

The human being has the skill to be able to move our thought processes into past and future. These processes allow us to solve problems, learn from the past, and anticipate scenarios. Furthermore, enable us to ride a bike in a natural way, without thinking thinking in all the steps to carry out that action.

Nevertheless, these same thought processes that allow us to operate in ‘automatic pilot’ can cause difficulties regarding our thoughts and feelings. When the ‘automatic pilot’ (tendency for unaware-ness) dominate our thoughts, our mind start to be preoccupied by the past and anxious for the future (causing potential health risks).

In this regard, Mindfulness confers the skill to “bring the awareness back to the actuality of the moment” and “step out of those mental reactions that often worsen the stress or depression and interfere with effective prob-lem solving.
