Managing ADHD - using your talents deliberately
Living with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be hard. People can think you are being deliberately annoying when really, you are just being you.
ADHD means hyperactivity; the feeling of needing to move or change your focus of attention often. The overwhelming desire for physical action can lead to feelings of restlessness and boredom when other people want you to focus and concentrate for long periods.
ADHD makes you impulsive
Having ADHD is also characterized by impulsivity which can mean acting before thinking sometimes. ADHD may sometimes seem to stop you considering consequences to actions. Having ADHD can mean you take risks where others don't.
But you may have noticed that sometimes you can really focus and concentrate on something that absorbs your attention so it's not true that ADHD stops you concentrating on everything. If something does grab your attention then you can focus on it for hours!
ADHD on the increase
It seems that more and more people especially young boys are being diagnosed with ADHD. Whether this is due to increased diagnosis of ADHD, the fact that children are spending more time in front of TV and computer screens with their fast cutting or just to an increase in labeling is still undecided. Regardless of whether the diagnosis is real, the symptoms are, and this session will help you manage them.
Hunters in a farmer's world
Some researchers have even questioned whether ADHD is actually a disorder. They suggest that to experience ADHD is to be a hunter in a farmer's world. People with ADHD actually have talents and positive attributes that used in the right way and in the right place would be highly beneficial. Thom Hartman who wrote 'Attention Deficit Disorder - a Different Perception' talks about people with ADHD as follows: [People with 'ADHD' are] 'hunters totally focused on movement, constantly monitoring their environment and exhibiting incredible bursts of energy. Correctly approached these characteristics can be harnessed for positive outcomes.'
But people with ADHD find themselves in a sitting down world full of non-ADHD sufferers or 'farmers' who are slower, steadier and more cautious.
ADHD may have its uses
Sometimes it is useful, even essential, to be energetic, fast moving and taking calculated risks. Many great sports people and incredibly successful entertainers and entrepreneurs have become successful and fulfilled partly because of their hyperactivity, not despite it.
So ADHD may be something that needs to be reigned in and mastered rather than cured or got rid of.
The way forward
There are times when ADHD energy will be great for you but also times when you need to relax, slow down and experience reality with more stillness and focus. It's like having a super power but being able to choose more when it us used rather than it happening all the time.
This session doesn't claim or aim to 'cure' ADHD but it will teach you how to be still and achieve more balance when it is required.
