Trying a new strategy to help with my ADHD.
Maybe it’s not so new; I may have tried it before? Maybe it’s a form of mindfulness?
Anyway, it’s pretty simple.
I occasionally stop whatever I’m doing wherever I am and pause.
I don’t do anything, just pause. Five or ten seconds.
No schedule, no trigger, no anchor. Just whenever.
I like it. It helps me slow down and helps me focus.
Now the trick is to remember to keep doing it so it will become a habit.
Couldn’t be simpler.
PS O the Day:
I’m trying to think of a strategy to help me remember to do it until it’s a habit. I don’t want to use an anchor. Is there another way?

They were wrong.

maybe anchor it to whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed? or particularly mindful/at peace.
i’d like to do it at random, no anchor. maybe 1 -3 times an hour?
we’ll see. thank you for the suggestion
