Using Mantras for ADHD
I don’t know about you, but I don’t wake up and leap out of bed bright and ready to go anymore. I stumble into the bathroom, answer the pressing physical demand that has my attention and then wonder what in the heck to do next.
That’s where the mantra comes in.
“Eyes, nose, patch.” I’m awake enough to remember to say the mantra, out loud.
“Eyes, nose, patch.”
So I put the drops in my eyes.
Then I spray the stuff into my nose.
Then I clean off an area on my belly and apply the Daytrana patch that I prepared the night before.
Then I’m ready to go.
Without the mantra, I’d still be standing there confused.
It’s about structure and habit. And it works.

Personal Notes O the Day:
I’ve been fishing for six straight days and haven’t had a bite but I persevere. The new ADHD book is about to come out. I started writing a novel for some reason. It was just there and needed to come out, but I wonder if it’s a waste of time. It has nothing to do with ADHD, not as far as I can see.
