Meditation is a specific practice that involves focusing your attention on one thing, such as your breath or a mantra, for a set amount of time. Mindfulness is a quality of awareness that can be cultivated through meditation or applied to any situation throughout the day. Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment without judgment or reflection. Some people use meditation as a spiritual practice, while others use it to enhance their mindfulness. Mindfulness can be a type or form of meditation, but not all meditation is mindfulness. Meditation is usually done in a seated position, while mindfulness can be done anywhere and anytime¹.
