The just sitting experiment is back on track after a brief detour. Hard to do with ADD or ADHD. The strategy of using meal times as anchors to remember to sit did not work, so I’m just doing it when I think of it. Surprisingly that is going pretty well. The goal is three times a day of just sitting for a few minutes without doing anything – not planning, assessing, or really thinking. It is very relaxing, clears my mind, and gets rid of that internal flywheel spinning pressured feeling, at least for a while. And it helps kind of get things in perspective. Seems valuable.
If I sit outside, which is really good sitting, the dog jumps into my lap. Then I’m petting her and it doesn’t quite meet the standard of just sitting, but still seems to have good effects. And petting a dog is good for you in itself.
and being out of doors is good for us

I’m still reading the ebook and loving it. I just got to the intermission. Wow, I never read a book with an intermission before. Summing up the first part of the book was a great way to keep your readers from feeling overwhelmed! I am definitely putting the paper version of this book on my wish list. When my book budger permits, I want it for my permanent reference library.
Thanks for your good work! Pam
