Mindfulness can sound kind of wishy-washy, airy-fairy, but there is good solid research behind the mental health benefits of being mindful, both in everyday life and in traumatic/stressful situations.
"Mindfulness can be described as paying attention in this moment with a non-judgemental awareness. Simply observing what we are experiencing, right now, and bringing a warm curiosity to whatever arises. In formal mindfulness practices our intention is often to centre our awareness on one particular experience, such as the sensations involved in breathing or the sounds that we can hear, or to watch where our attention goes without getting caught up in particular experiences."
