ADHD and mindfulness

There’s no doubt that the last few years have been tough on all of us. Whether you grieved the loss of a loved one, had to quickly adjust to new working conditions, or deal daily with the chaos and confusion, it’s been hard. And I’m not even going to mention the price of eggs or how hard it is to get ADHD medications refilled.

I’d like to think the tough times are over but life often seems to toss a curveball at you when you least expect it. 

So I wanted to share with you a brilliantly simple ADHD mindfulness breathing technique that helps me stay calm and controlled when life gets tough.

A Simple ADHD Mindfulness Breathing Technique

Often breathing techniques recommended for ADHD mindfulness seem too complicated for our scattered brains to follow.

This powerful, yet simple, mindfulness breath practice is very easy to remember. It instantly calms me and is lovely for ADHD emotional control. 

As I’ve become more relaxed and mindful of my ADHD emotions, I’ve become more resilient and peaceful. Things that used to set me off have less power. 

Here’s all you do:

Breathe in very slowly to a count of three.

Breathe out very slowly to a count of six.

That’s it. In three, out six.

Try this simple ADHD mindfulness breathing technique. Hopefully, it will help you as much as it has me. Let me know what you think.
