November 4 - November 6

Mindfulness in Three Parts: A Complex Cognitive Toolset for Complex ADHD

ADHD and mindfulness are both often underestimated and oversimplified.   ADHD is not specifically about attention or behavior, as it is a wide-ranging disorder that undermines executive function skills responsible for all of life management.  ADHD therefore can cause anything from chronic stress to long-term health problems, and impacts near every aspect of life.   Mindfulness, meanwhile, is not about paying attention or being calm specifically.   It grows out of long-term practice and allows us to stay more settled under stress, allowing us to see our lives with clarity and determination, and encompasses both compassion and ethics. Mindfulness develops cognitive traits through direct practice over time and through that effort allows us to stay more focused, make better choices, and to stick to our best intentions more consistently in how we live, and how we treat other people.   While the word ‘mindful’ has been appropriated in many ways, the underlying intention runs deep.   Studies suggest brain-based changes in focused attention (even if you have ADHD), stress management, emotional regulation, and even compassion.   Those radical changes support all aspects of ADHD care.
