Mindful Life Optimization class was created to reassure you that as an ADHD adult, you are brilliant, which you know, but also you definitely are responsible, able to be present, and attentive.
There are perfectly good reasons that you ignore tasks, leave them unfinished, don’t put things back where they belong, act impulsively, lose interest, become bored, anxious, hyper-sensitive to blame, have no sense of time, forget important things, and go from one thing to another and can’t stick with things to the finish line.
It is NOT because you are lazy, crazy, or don’t care, nor because you have a disorder.
Through years of work with thousands of clients, Dr. William Dodson, a psychiatrist, tells us the ADHD brain simply functions differently than the 80% – 90% of the rest of society who are “Neurotypicals.” For example, you become motivated, engaged, focused, and on top of things in 4-5 completely unique ways than others do. This can cause you to be hyper-focused or not engaged. There are several other differences.
Most doctors and mental health professionals are not educated about these differences and treat them according to old DSM paradigms. Unfortunately, most tips, including regular Mindfulness aimed to fix these issues fail, leaving the ADHD adult feeling hopeless and stuck.
The good news is you can Mindfully Optimize your life.
