You are likely familiar with mindfulness by now. Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment. Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them – without believing that they are “right” or “wrong”.
Kindfulness is similar but focuses on using volunteering and intentional acts of kindness to bring awareness to the impact you make on others and the positive mental state created by serving others.
There are five pillars to kindfulness – volunteering, intentional acts of kindness, connection, reflection and inspiration.
