Dr. Motaghy’s Message about Mindful Life Optimization for Adult ADHD

I am here to reassure you that as an ADHD adult, you are brilliant, but you already know that. Also, that you definitely are a responsible person and are 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, have no sense of time, forget important things, and go from one thing to another unable to stick with tasks to the finish line.

No, it is NOT because you are lazy, crazy, 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 that knowing them could change your life.

Most doctors and mental health professionals are not educated about these differences and treat ADHD according to old DSM paradigms. Unfortunately, most tips, including regular Mindfulness practices aimed to fix these issues fail as well, leaving the ADHD adult feeling hopeless and stuck.

The good news is you can change this.

Ways Mindful Life Optimization for Adult ADHD Can Transform Your World.

Are you tired of tardiness, procrastination, and endless unfinished tasks?

Learn why to do lists and prioritization don’t work consistently and how to improve the odds of finishing projects.

Are you constantly facing mistakes, forgetting important things, and disappointing others at work and at home?

Learn the proper path to staying motivated and attentive to what is meaningful in your life and create a lasting trust.

Do you feel constantly criticized by family, and friends? Even by Yourself?

Learn how the “Neurotypical” ways of life and expectations hinder/dampen the strengths and brilliance of your unique nervous system and how to get them to support you rather than hinder you.

Do you suffer from being scattered, depressed, and anxious?

Not all Mindfulness meditations or practices work for the ADHD brain. Learn practices that calm your nervous system, bring focus to your mind and enhance your sense of joy and well-being.

For the first time, I feel so comfortable with having an ADHD brain, It’s like coming out. I feel hopeful for my children and so happy I can understand them so much better. Thank you.
