Good descriptions of mindfulness

I found a little Squidoo piece entitled "How does mindfullness help treat anxiety". Here are a couple of quotations from that:
The nature of mindfulness is to live life with awareness and participate in each moment with intention and focus.
Mindfulness is not escaping from reality, being non emotional or letting life pass you by. Instead, it is a way of learning to live life fully in each moment without preconceived notions and without judgement.
These are very succinct, wonderfully precise articulations of what we are talking about when we talk about mindfulness.
