Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surroundings without judging them (KabbatZinn, 2005). People who practice mindfulness choose what to focus their attention on and can respond in the best way to difficult and complex situation (Newsome,Waldo and Gruska 2012). It helps nurses cope with stress, connect with their patients and lead to improve quality of life (Newsome et al. 2012). Multi-tasking as the name suggest is doing more than one task at time. When we multi task we cannot give our full attention to any task, which can lead to error, poor quality work, mismanaged time, automatic solutions, stress and forgetfulness (Healy 2004). Focusing on one task at a time will be a challenge for most nurses as we have always been multi-tasking but with simple meditation as deep breathing before a task hopefully we can practice mindfulness to improve patient outcome.
