    I’ve read a few books.

    Plus yoga incorporates it.

    It works.

    Apparently you have to be flexible to do yoga which rules me out as I can only do Tuesday's and the odd Thursday.

    Yes, I did headspace online for a couple of years and it helped me to learn to chill out and not get too wound up about things. Other half did it too and helped her with flying issues etc .

    In a nut shell,.. There's a Zen saying.. When I eat I eat, when I sleep I sleep..
    That is mindfulness... being aware of what you are doing right now, nothing else

    I use headspace and would define recommend it. Think you get 10 free lessons to give it a go but worth the money afterwards in my opinion.

    If I've been to one I can't remember, and I can't see myself going to one in the future.

    I only live in the here and now.

    Oh hang on!

    I've not been to classes but I have read books on it and I really think it works. There's bits that won't be 'you' and you'll roll your eyes at but, taken as a whole, it's a powerful thing. I've found CBT techniques fantastic and they honestly have changed my life.

    I'm a hypnotherapist. I can draw quite a few similarities from the concept of mindfulness to some of the techniques I use. Anything that promotes a clearing out the clutter / negative things in our mind is great. Like somebody mentioned above, not all the techniques suit everyone because we are all individuals.
