The origin of the word mindfulness which means attention in English, It comes from the Pali word sati , meaning "memory of the present." Broadly speaking, this Buddhist concept speaks of the importance of living fully in the present. This philosophy is more relevant now than ever, since in the face of uncertainty , it is common to feel nostalgic for the past or anxious for the future , instead of working on the human capacity to be aware in the here and now.

There are physical activities that promote these levels of consciousness or mindfulness , making it possible to actively connect with feelings , thoughts and the space that surrounds you in the present , in order to regain internal balance .

At L'Officiel we set out to discover the new Mexican projects that have led these revolutionary practices to online communication channels.
