    Key Points

    Mindfulness is paying attention to what’s happening in the present moment — in the body, in the mind, in the external environment — with an attitude of curiosity and kindness.
    What are you thinking, and how is that impacting your interaction with the person before you?
    There is a different quality of experience when you’re paying attention to what’s happening.
    The easiest way to get started with mindfulness is to focus on your breathing.
