ADDA Webinar: Self Compassion & ADHD
May 5 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0Free
A practice of self-compassion has been shown to improve our well-being, motivation, and how we treat people around us. Researchers have demonstrated that from childhood to adulthood, counter to often feared, letting go of perfectionism and self-criticism provides huge benefits in life. It’s not a new-age cry that everyone is perfect as they are, but the opposite – it’s building the ability to tackle challenges with the same benefit of the doubt you would give a close friend. It’s even more vital with ADHD, because of chronic struggles with life management, executive function-based, skills that undermine self-confidence and self-image. Without self-compassion, it becomes that much harder to stay motivated and get a handle on ADHD. For parents, teens, and adults, a healthy dose of self-compassion goes a long way to managing ADHD with more persistence, skill, and success
