Here are some mindfulness resources for your busy brain
Meditation is a broad term with many possible interpretations; just like the word exercise. Exercise may refer to anything from weight lifting to bike riding, yoga or dance or really any repetitive task that strengthens our muscles or challenges in our body. Depending on where you are in your fitness journey that may mean anything from running a marathon to walking around the block or even, in the case of a recent injury or disability, walking down the hallway. So too can meditation be as simple as taking a quiet moment to focus on your breath or noticing your internal sensations.
ADHD and other forms of neurodivergence often make gathering our attention or maintaining focus especially challenging but that doesn’t mean that meditation is anymore out of reach then a walk down the hall or that neurodivergent folx can’t be among the most skilled meditators. In fact the increased need to train the mind to fit into an increasingly neurotypical mental world makes a meditation practice all the more valuable and engaging, particularly strategies that improve the mind-body connection or increase introspection, such as noting, grounding and body scan. Whether you are an experienced meditator or are simply looking to study again with a begginer’s mind consider these strategies for improving focus and reconnecting with yourself.
