How to use this worksheet

Mindfulness, a technique borrowed from Buddhist meditation, focuses on a state of nonjudgmental awareness of what is happening in the present moment, including awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings and sense, focusing on the here and now, while putting life’s noise, demands, and stressors in the background while you concentrate on the present moment (Hosey et al., 2018).
