For several years, researchers have been exploring alternate ways to treat ADHD, such as through mindfulness and memory training. Recently, scholars have suggested that mindfulness, which includes paying attention to your thoughts, actions and emotions, may be beneficial to individuals affected with ADHD symptoms.
As someone who has an insatiable desire to know and do everything, I've also come to find three insights particularly helpful. Rather than concrete actions, they serve more as mindsets or perspectives to take on all that is available to us now -- and stay centered on what truly matters to us as individuals.
Now, you have control of your time and your life. The world wants your attention. Instead of letting others distract and control you, take the lead, put your priorities in focus and take time for things that matter most to you. I can promise you the distractions will still be here when you are ready to focus on them.
When we leave the moment by getting distracted by our thoughts, we lose the opportunity to experience what it feels to really be alive. We can easily get caught fixating about a past hurt or worrying about a future concern. But when we can bring our focus back to this moment, we have the opportunity to heal.
