The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD: An Eight-Step Program for Strengthening Attention, Managing Emotions and Achieving Your Goals

by Lidia Zylowska, M.D. — 

Do you have trouble paying attention and staying on task; suffer from disorganization, procrastination or forgetfulness; have difficulty with restlessness or trouble managing strong feelings such as anger and frustration; struggle with self-doubt and difficulty following through in a way that causes problems in your relationships or your work?

If so, you may have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) — like an estimated 8 million adults in this country. Zylowska, a physician researcher, has created an eight-step program for using mindfulness practice (attention and awareness training) to overcome the symptoms of ADHD.

The program includes practices such as sitting meditation, body awareness, thoughtful speaking and listening, development of self-acceptance, mindful self-coaching, cultivation of a balanced view of thoughts and emotions, and more.

She educates readers about ADHD, helping them to understand how the ADHD brain works and how to use mindful awareness to work with their challenges. She also explains how the mindful approach can be combined with other treatments, including medications, to boost self-improvement.

The book includes an audio program of guided mindfulness exercises for successfully managing ADHD.
