Putting mindfulness on a pedestal has the unintended consequence of making it intimidating. If you think of mindfulness as a state of higher consciousness that you can only reach through esoteric practices, it will make you feel disempowered.

So I like to bring the definition of mindfulness down to earth:

Life is interaction, and mindfulness is our natural ability to manage the interactions of life. We can develop this innate ability through practice.
