What is Mindfulness?

As human beings, we often find it challenging to stay in the present moment.  Our minds tend to either think about the past or future.  Thoughts that enter our stream of thinking can be worrying, dwelling on negatives, planning, reflecting on memories, regrets, imaginary arguments and so on.
