Understanding the Three Aspects of Mindfulness

1  Intention – Your intention is what you hope to get from practicing mindfulness. You may want stress reduction, greater emotional balance or to discover your true nature. The strength of your intention helps to motivate you to practice mindfulness on a daily basis, and shapes the quality of your mindful awareness.

2  Attention – Mindfulness is about paying attention to your inner or outer experience. Your mindful attention is mainly developed through various different types of meditation – either formal, traditional, and/or informal – a mindful beauty routine :)

3  Attitude – Mindfulness involves paying attention to certain attitudes, such as curiosity, acceptance and kindness.
