This is taken straight from Tchich Nhat Hanh and his book ‘Silence’ which I highly recommend.

“The practice of Mindfulness is very simple. You stop, you breathe, you still your mind. You come home to yourself and come home to the here and now in every moment.”

Not only is this occasionally my own experience, but it reminds me of the dot b practice I teach to young people. This comes in four parts, though I only actually teach the first three as I am not skilled enough to do the last step; I leave that to my participants.

Stop

Notice your feet

Pay attention to your breath

Be

That the teaching I try to share mirrors what one of the world’s ‘guiding lights (Times Literary Supplement) on Mindfulness is saying I find both reassuring and marvellously uplifting.
