A first step in becoming a mindful human is waking up to how you use your physical body to navigate daily life. When applying mindfulness to movement you maintain focused attention on your body and practice open monitoring (observing without judgement).
Being present during movement is one facet of mindful movement, as is knowing at any given time, whether looking with your eyes or not, where your body exists in space (proprioception). Further down the line, moving mindfully represents choosing movement practices, postures and positions that are beneficial for a human, not just in the short term but for long term health, mobility, and functionality.
Whether an athlete focused on optimizing performance and avoiding future injuries, or a person simply interested in maximizing how you feel inside your body, learning to move mindfully is an important component to getting the most out of this life experience.
