It may seem impossible to pay attention to the “now” when you have a hard time paying attention in the first place. But after interviewing Casey Dixon on mindfulness and ADHD on our Podcast this week, we learned about her beautiful approach to help you manage your ADHD. She shows you how to break down what seems impossible and make it very possible! And she explains the research behind how mindfulness can help you successfully manage your ADHD.
I know many people are very interested in mindfulness and want to make this a daily practice, so I have put together a few resources for you to check out below. I hope you take the time for yourself to research this wonderful method.
