I know there’s tons of stuff and hype out there on this topic… Here are free audio tracks that I like because they’re simple and genuine. Henry

“Reminding yourself to take notice of your body sensations, thoughts, feelings, and the world around you is the first step to mindfulness.” (NHS)

For an introduction to mindfulness meditation that you can practice on your own, stream or download the guided meditationsat UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Centre

Although meditation implies mindfulness, the reverse is not necessarily so. For example, I also do mindful movement formally (yoga, stretching, martial arts) and in everyday activities.

“Meditation is the practice of mindfulness while sitting or standing quietly for a period of time. Meditation is sometimes mistakenly thought to be the core of mindfulness. However, it is important not to confuse meditation and mindfulness. Although meditation implies mindfulness, the reverse is not necessarily so: Mindfulness does not require meditation. This distinction is very important. Although everyone can practice mindfulness, not everyone can practice meditation. Some cannot sit or stand still. Some are too terrified to look at their breath or watch their mind. Some cannot practice meditation now, but will be able to at a later point.”
