-Suffer from disorganization and forgetfulness?
-Have difficulty managing feelings of anger and frustration?
-Struggle with self-doubt and difficulty following through?
-Often feel restless or bored?
Are these challenges causing problems in your relationships or your work? If so, like an estimated 8 million adults in this country, you may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Physician-researcher Dr. Lidia Zylowska (Dr. Z) specializes in the applications of mindfulness in mental health, and in this book she offers an effective mindfulness-based approach to overcoming attention deficits.
The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD offers an 8-step program that teaches simple yet powerful mindfulness practices, adapted for those struggling with ADHD. Practices include sitting meditation, body awareness, mindful speaking and listening, self-acceptance, and more. Throughout the book are short vignettes and examples of adults with ADHD demonstrating how mindful awareness can be used to manage typical ADHD-related challenges.
The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD also educates readers about ADHD, helping them to see this condition as a neurobiological difference that comes with strengths as well as weaknesses. In addition, Dr. Z explains how the mindful approach can be combined with other common treatments, such as medications or cognitive behavioral therapy, to enhance self-improvement and quality of life.
