Mindfulness may be both more and less than you think. It’s not only a way of staying settled when stressed, but a practical way to work with challenges in life. It can help with all the stress ADHD causes, with self-esteem, and through seeing ADHD more clearly, with less judgment, all of which improves care … and your own sense of well being too.
