Although mindfulness is not automatic and does not occur spontaneously, it can be learned and practiced so that it can be accessed intentionally when needed. Some of the characteristics of mindfulness include non-judgmental awareness, paying attention on purpose, remaining non-judgmental, staying in the present, being non-reactive, and remaining openhearted and compassionate. Mindfulness has many benefits that can help to reduce the stress associated with daily hassles: - Increased acceptance--By not making evaluations, participants can accept the internal thoughts in their mind and see these messages as simple mental processes rather than pure truths. - Greater awareness--Participants will be able to experience expanded awareness and a clearer vision of the world and its processes. - Less intense reactions--Participants will be less inclined to react when experiencing the stress of daily hassles. Instead, they will develop an observer stance through which they are free from evaluation, attachment, and frustration. - Relaxed approach--Participants will learn to relax to be better able to cope with worry, anxiety, and stress related to daily hassles in life. - Calm demeanor--Participants develop a state of mind in which they are mentally and physically at peace. They will be prepared to deal more effectively with the daily worry, anxiety, and stress caused by everyday hassles. They will experience greater overall well-being. - Mental functioning--Participants will experience greater concentration, focus, and self-awareness that will promote greater personal and professional growth and development.
