Introduction to Mindfulness for Adult ADHD
Empowering Your Brilliance To Enjoy An Optimal Life.
I’m here to reassure you that as an ADHD adult you are brilliant, which you know, but also you are definitely able to be present and attentive.
There are perfectly good reasons (no, not being defective, or disordered) 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 can’t stick with things to the finish line.
Through years of work with thousands of clients Dr. William Dodson, psychiatrist, tells us the ADHD brain simply functions differently than the 80% – 90% of the rest of the 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 are not educated about these differences and treat according to old DSM paradigms. Unfortunately, most tips, including regular Mindfulness aimed to fix these issues have failed, leaving the ADHD adult feel hopeless and stuck.
There is good news.
All my life I felt that I didn’t fit in, couldn’t follow through, too sensitive, too distracted, and just a failure, until this class. It almost feels like coming out. I have a new found hope.
