When you think of mindfulness, you may think of a full mind. Perhaps it reminds you of someone highly intelligent such as an engineer, neuroscientist, astrophysicist, or the “You May Be Smarter Than a Fifth Grader” friend. These are indeed people with full minds, but they are not necessarily mindful individuals. In general, someone who is mindful is someone we think of who is present, who notices, who remembers. And, mindfulness may improve attention.
