Mindful means being aware of what is happening in the present moment, without judgment. It is a way of paying attention that is calm, deliberate, and accepting. For cancer patients and their caregivers, it helps return the focus to the present moment and steers them away from the worry of the unknowns that cancer brings. Mindfulness is a skill that can be learned and practiced and is a powerful tool for navigating through tough times. It can be helpful to cancer patients in a number of ways, including:
Reducing stress and anxiety
Improving quality of life
