QUIZ: How mindful are you?

Do you find your self running on auto-pilot? Or find it hard to stay focused on the task at hand?

If so, you could benefit from the ancient technique of mindfulness.

Mindfulness has been around for thousands of years and can help you lower stress, discover your true self and improve your quality of life.

Mindfulness incorporates elements of meditations, breathing and concentration, to focus on the present moment while calmly acknowledging and accepting the feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations that crop up.

Before you attend Mind Body Spirit later this month, take our mindfulness quiz and see how tuned in to life you really are.
