It states that mindfulness was originally a Buddhist meditation technique that has been recently adapted in to a range of secular courses and therapies. Most of these are focused on being aware of the present moment and concentrating on those feelings.
It is a useful therapy for anxiety and depression and is being explored by schools, sports teams and military units as a way to boost performance. There is other evidence that it helps with a host of other problems too. Recently brain imaging techniques are revealing that it also changes the way the brain thinks permanently and can help with pain relief and other problems long term.
