Mindfulness, on the other hand, is the act of purposefully paying attention to the present moment without judgment, cultivating a state of non-reactive awareness.
The duration of meditation can vary depending on your preferences and availability. Beginners often start with shorter sessions, around 5 to 10 minutes, and gradually increase the time as they become more comfortable.
