Step Back Part 3 – So How Did I Do? — Tip o the Day 429

On the trip I became tense and pressured, like you can get with ADD or ADHD.  You know what I mean?  So I became aware of it, and stepped back.
Then:
1. I prayed about it.
2. I started taking time to meditate every morning, as I do at home.
3. I used self talk, telling myself that we were on vacation and there was no need to hurry.
4. I journaled about it.
5. I spent more time outdoors enjoying the beauty, paying attention.
Did this work?
Well, some.  It got better.  Some.  This was late in the trip, and I think if I had more days to stick with it, it would’ve helped more.
Do you have some other suggestions or methods?

Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (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.
