Mindful? Mindfulness? What does it actually mean?

considering EBBF ’s tagline “mindful people meaningful work” I was particularly curious about this article on mindfulness

Liked these quotes that give descriptions of mindfulness: 
“a direct knowing of what is going on inside and outside ourselves, moment by moment” … 
“about learning to direct our attention to our experience as it unfolds, rather than “living in our heads” …. 
“connecting with the present moment, calmly observing our thoughts, feelings and sensations so as to become more directly aware of them” …
“becoming more aware of the world around you: switching off the auto-pilot, noticing and watching your thoughts and feelings, waking up to the physical sensations of things”
