Mindfulness has become a bit of a buzzword, isn't it just a fad?
There are many 'myths' around mindfulness. One of these is that it's just a fad which will pass. Although it has only been taught and popularised in the West for 40 years or so, it stems from practices which are several thousand years old. Mindfulness is now well researched and used in many professions, clinical settings, sport and education. As more people practice mindfulness and experience the benefits, it will evolve but it is unlikely to disappear, as fads often to.
