In terms of mindfulness and meditation, is there any difference?

What are the similarities between mindfulness and meditative practices?
In comparison to mindfulness, meditation is like running or working out in a gym. Sometimes, meditation requires you to sit still, pay attention to your breath, and return to it repeatedly as you get distracted... It can also mean paying attention while eating, walking, or falling asleep.
Meditation can help you cultivate a state of mindfulness, but you don't necessarily need to meditate to be present. For example, you can devote all your attention and energy to a conversation with a friend or family member.
