ADHD Wellness with Mindfulness Strategies to help Focus on the Present

Living with ADHD presents its unique set of challenges, but with the right strategies, one can navigate through them effectively. In this article, we delve into the world of mindfulness in motion, exploring proven techniques to enhance ADHD wellness.


Embracing Mindfulness: A Powerful Approach to ADHD Wellbeing Wellness


As an individual who was diagnosed with ADHD and BPD in my mid-thirties, finding mindfulness and wellness' strategies has been a game changer. Implementing techniques like the tips I have listed, has given me clarity on many aspects of my life. I just had to share these tips with you!


Incorporating Mindfulness Techniques into Your Daily Life


Tip #1 - Mindful Breathing: Grounding Yourself to Focus in the Present


Begin your journey towards ADHD wellness by implementing breathing techniques into your daily rituals and routines. Engage in deep, intentional breathing exercises to center your thoughts and anchor yourself in the present. Bring yourself to a quiet calm noise free place to centre yourself from all the outside noise. This simple yet powerful technique helps alleviate distractions and enhances concentration.



Tip #2 - Sensory Awareness: Tuning into the Present Environment with Mindfulness Strategies


Activate your senses consciously and become more aware of your surroundings without focusing to much on the situation, environment, sights, sounds, smells, or textures, just becoming aware of the moment. Whether it's the texture of an object or the sound of birds chirping, heighten your sensory awareness. By immersing yourself in the present environment, you can minimize external distractions and promote a state of focused calm. Try your best to surf through your emotions like a surfer rides a wave.



"Science is showing us that there are neurological (brain) factors that contribute to self-control and willpower, along with learning and upbringing. And when these brain systems are functioning improperly or become damaged, normal levels of self-control and willpower are impossible."Dr. Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D.


Tip #3 - Mindful Movement: Channeling Energy Productively


Explore physical activities that synchronize with mindfulness. Yoga, tai chi, or even a mindful walk around your neighborhood can help channel excess energy, providing an outlet for hyperactivity while promoting a sense of tranquility. Personally, this is a strategy that helps me clear my mind and refocus on the day. I bring my Bose Noise-Cancelling headphones onto my favorite Spotify playlist and release my mind from overthinking.


Transitioning Towards a More Focused Future


As you embark on this mindfulness journey, embrace the power of transition words to seamlessly connect your thoughts. Words like 'moreover,' 'however,' and 'consequently' facilitate smooth transitions, enhancing the flow of your narrative. The power of positive thinking and daily positive gratitude affirmations have a tremendous affect on the neurodivergent brain, take full advantage of these mindfulness hacks.


Taking Action: Your Path to Lasting ADHD Wellness


In summary, mindfulness in motion emerges as a beacon of hope for individuals navigating the complexities of their ADHD, like myself. By incorporating mindful breathing, sensory awareness, and purposeful movement into your daily routine, you pave the way for enhanced focus, overall well-being and more joy into your daily lifestyle.


Remember, ADHD wellness is an ongoing process, and the journey is as crucial as the destination. Embrace mindfulness as your ally, trust the process, and unlock a path towards a more centered and fulfilling life. You deserve it!
