Many of us take a top down approach to our wellness thinking that if we change the way we eat, if we work out, buy ethical products then we are achieving wellness. Yet there is still an upsetting amount of judgement and shame that we put on ourselves and others and the initiative fails. Why is this? Changing your perspective might truly be the first step.

Procrastination is yet another fabulous perk of having ADHD. Not all procrastinators have ADHD and not all people with ADHD procrastinate, but this is for those who do or those who have loved ones with the affliction.

I have found Yoga to be an extremely helpful practice to manage the issues that stem from ADHD. Additionally, the physical aspect of Hatha is extremely beneficial to counteract the side effects of the ADHD medication I take.
With any learning or psychological difficulties, the best way to manage is to balance the body, mind, and spirit, since the problem is often the result of an imbalance. For instance, in ADHD the right brain is functioning at a higher capacity than the left so there is an imbalance in the use of each. Yoga is a holistic practice so it will not cause further imbalances by strengthening one part and not another.

From Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet
“Of the good in you I can speak, but not of the evil.
For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?
Verily when good is hungry it seeks food even in dark caves, and when it thirsts it drinks even of dead waters.”
