Wilma Jones talks about mindfulness, or the ability to be present in the current moment. It’s capacity to focus on exactly where you are right now and what you are doing in the moment without judgment. The biggest thing about mindfulness is the incorporation of breathing, because breathing while you're mindful is what causes the physiological changes that happen to your body. There is also a difference between mindfulness vs. mindlessness. When you’re mindless, you let past experiences keep you stuck in behavior patterns. Mindfulness is all about having control over your thoughts without judging and making assumptions about what’s going to happen based on your memories of the past.
