Mindfulness is the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment and as if your life depended on it. ”
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindful aging is about paying attention to what gives you meaning and joy and staying present to enjoy your life.
It involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without giving them labels of "right" or "wrong".
