The Blue Book — ADD Tip o the Day 290

I recommend this book, The Quiet Mind.  This is a spiritual matter, but you will see that you can apply these principles to anything.  The book is new agey, left field, a little weird, kind of  Christian.  It has short little blurbs.  I use it to stay grounded, focused.  Here is the principle:   It sits on a shelf in my office, and everytime I go in or out of the office (in general), I read a blurb.  This is extremely helpful to me.

The going in or out is the anchor, it tells me to read the blurb.  The reading has many positive effects; one is like the sitting, it gets me away from the turmoil in my mind and my immediate concerns and gives me a little space and distance.  So it is helpful to me spiritually but in other ways too.  So if your spiritual life is important to you, I recommend the book; if not , you can use something else to achieve some of the same benefits and you can use the anchoring strategy.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
