Mindfulness is a prominent emerging theory in the field of medicine. Most studies refer to mindfulness described by Jon Kabat-Zinn, one that defines mindfulness as paying attention to the present moment, non-judgmentally. Mindfulness-based interventions generally use meditation as the mechanism to increase mindfulness. Although quite common, this is not the only possible way to work with this construct. In the talk, we will discuss another approach to mindfulness, which does not require meditation and can be easily incorporated in everyday life, rooted in over 40 years of research. Furthermore, we will explore how this approach could be implemented in the medical field, introducing recent research findings from the health psychology field.
