STOP is a very useful technique for ADD ADHD. It cuts down on impulsiveness and can help deal with feelings – “upset”, angry, confused, frustrated, demoralized, etc.
It’s an awareness practice, which can help us decrease getting caught up in distractions. And it’s just good for your health in general.
• Stop what you’re doing.
• Take a few breaths.
• Observe what’s going on for you, internally and externally.
• Pick what would be best to do next.

PS I put “upset” in quotes because it’s a general term used for an uncomfortable emotional state but camouflaging its true identity. It is more helpful to be aware and specify the exact emotion you are having.
