It has been a very rainy summer here in Vermont. ADHD like any condition that has an effect on our moods, seems to be affected by sunshine or lack of it. That's just a personal observation mind you. The worst part of what is happening right now is that it rains every weekend and is hot and sunny during the week.
As I sit in my office looking out the window trying desperately to concentrate, I've come to the conclusion that all the meds and meditating in the world can't seem to stop me from wanting to go outside and play. This weather is just not fair. Hmm, what am I going to do about this?
I've got it! I will expand my lunch "hour" to 60 minutes from 30 and go for a mindfulness meditation walk at lunchtime. Now, how to rearrange my schedule and clients, and when will I eat my salad? Details, just details. I'll change the times in my appointment book and speak to each of the clients that will be effected. My first priority is sunshine. Here is an idea, I will do a mindfulness meditation walk to the park and eat my salad on the swings. This way I will meditate, play, eat and feel the sun on my face. This is a glorious way to take care of my need for mindfulness meditation, food and play. It is also a great way to add balance to life and to help to take charge of ADHD. Perhaps I should have named this article ADHD & Problem Solving? always remember, mindfulness matters… Mindfulness Matters Coaching®
