Mindfulness helps us to become aware of our feelings and thoughts, and how they influence both our behaviour and our perception of the world.
The practice can help us to uncover the thinking errors and traps that our minds can fall into, unless we are alert.
It is important to be aware of these thinking traps in order to allow mindfulness to fully develop.
Mindfulness meditation also help us to become more aware of these thinking errors.
When we are able to identify them, it means that they become less frequent, this then enables our level of mindfulness to increase.
