Stepping back is a highly useful technique for anyone, not just those of us with ADD or ADHD
I suddenly stepped back this morning, and I was surprised – appalled is maybe too strong a word – surprised to realize what I have been doing.
I have been in a negative mode, tense and worried about things that might happen, trying to stay in control of everything, feeling pressured and that ADD sense of “hurry, hurry” which makes no sense at all right now. Ugh!
The next question of course is how to change this. Becoming aware of it is certainly a big step in the right direction.
Step back – this is related to mindfulness. Just pause, step back, and take note of how you’re feeling, what you’re thinking, what you’re doing and what is going on.
more on this next time.
