Mindfulness is often thought of as ‘being in the moment.’ It’s more about returning to the moment again and again.
That’s because our minds wander by default – so we have to keep bringing them back.
Returning again and again helps us to avoid getting lost in rumination. Rumination means thinking negative thoughts over and over again.
Rumination can lead us towards depression or excessive anger so the ability to come out of it quickly is very valuable.
