Do Adults with ADHD experience stress more than non ADHD adults?
6 Tips to Navigate ADHD Support Groups
Ever since I became an
, I have been on a constant
quest to find ways to make meditation easier for adults with ADHD.
Why? Because although meditation for adults with ADHD sounds
like a contradition in terms, it can be highly beneficial.
Meditation does wonders to minimize the negative
effects of ADHD.
It increases concentration.
It decreases impulsivity.
It increases cognitive functioning.
It decreases mood swings.
It decreases stress and anxiety.
It promotes healthy sleep and self confidence.
When that happens, you feel happier, and more
in control of your life. Plus the gifts of ADHD can shine brightly.So I want to share this great audio with you.
A few weeks ago collegue Marcia Hoeck and I interviewed fellow
Montrealer, Dr. Joe Flanders who specializes in Mindfulness
Meditation. He explained how to use Mindful Meditation to your
advantage when you are an adult with ADHD.
What Marcia and I learned, along with our hundreds of listeners,
1) Why Mindful Meditation is so powerful, and the science behind it.
2) How easy it is.
3) The best time of day to practise it.
4) You don’t have to sit still.
5) How it helps stress and anxiety, confidence, and much much more.
Perhaps the most powerful message of all was that you haven’t failed
if your busy mind jumps around.
Dr. Joe uses the analogy of working out at a gym.Every time your brain jumps to another thought and you bring it back, it is as though you have done a rep with your weights. This is a good thing.
He also walks us through a 5-minute meditation so you can practise
all the new tips straight away. So if you struggled with meditation
in the past, with these simple yet powerful strategies you won’t any more!!!
If you have any questions just let me know!
