Hi, so I myself have not been diagnosed but my mind wanders and wanders and I multitask and forget half the stuff I’m doing because of LOTS of distractions around me and in my own head….. Anyway, I found an app that I really love. Breethe, what I enjoy about it is that I can take 5 minutes to try and meditate, sometimes it works and other times it doesn’t but I can’t beat myself over that since I know how hard it is for me to focus on the present moment. I do keep the app on at work throughout the day, it has different selections for different moods. I am a school social worker so I also keep the app on when I have kids in my room, whether we are talking, playing, or just sitting together. The kids enjoy it, I enjoy it, I feel at peace even when I am not purposely meditating.
But like everyone else, we are all different and what works for one may not work for the other. However don’t give up, do what works for you. If you haven’t seen Natural Life they have your daily chirp of the day: Today is going to be the best day ever!!!! One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.
