Mediation has been found to: improve concentration, reduce stress, help to create a calmer more peaceful and more content person, improve sleep patterns, enable one to compartmentalise life, improved listening skill, improve concentration, reduces nightmares, assist to find joy in all tasks, and heighten awareness of one’s spirit.
If you have ADHD, although meditation might be harder and take longer for you to achieve the rewards, it is worthwhile as it has the potential to make huge difference to the symptoms of ADHD in daily life. Thus, it is well worth pursuing these skills and implementing the techniques. I have a special interest in ADHD in adults and young adults (especially those 16-30 years of undertaking either their final two years of school or starting post school studies or work). Developing the skills of mindfulness and meditation are long-term tools for calming hyperactivity, increasing attentiveness, increasing concentration, and reducing impulsiveness. Clinic research has only tracked those involved in these techniques for a few months and I have found this is too short a time to reap the benefits that are possible once you train and discipline the ADHD busy mind. For example, once having trained the mind you are able to be detached from the impulsive thoughts, you see them coming and are able to have a more objective examination of them and not just impulsively act before thinking.
Tailoring to your Need:
By offering 8 different styles of meditation one can decide which practices best suit your lifestyle and personality. For example, sitting meditation may be physically difficult or it might be mentally too long to sit still. Thus, walking meditation might be just the right fit for you. Finding time to undertake the traditional forms of meditation might be impossible for you to fit in presently but you can gain a great deal from the mental exercises that can be incorporated into your daily tasks and thus take no extra time.
Book and Audio:
The book and audio are included in the course price. This is extremely helpful in allowing you to cement the practices at home developing the learning in less time and gaining a deeper understanding.
