Modern clinical psychology and psychiatry since the 1970s have developed a number of therapeutic applications based on the concept of being mindful. According to various prominent psychological definitions, mindfulness refers to a psychological quality that involves (1) bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis, or (2) involves paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally, or (3) involves a kind of nonelaborative, nonjudgmental, present-centered awareness in which each thought, feeling, or sensation that arises in the attentional field is acknowledged and accepted as it is.
