It's estimated that roughly 8 million adults in the U.S. suffer from ADHD. Drawing on the author's original research and on her clinical practice, this book offers an effective mindfulness-based approach to overcoming attention deficits. The heart of the book is an 8-step program that teaches simple yet powerful mindfulness practices, adapted for those struggling with ADHD. These practices include sitting meditation, body awareness, mindful speaking and listening, self-acceptance, and more. Throughout, Dr. Zylowska (Dr. Z) includes short vignettes and examples of adults with ADHD, demonstrating how mindful awareness can be used to manage the typical daily challenges of this disorder. Presented with an ADHD-friendly page design, this book also educates the reader about ADHD and helps readers to appreciate ADHD as a neurobiological difference that comes with strengths as well as weaknesses. Dr. Z also shows how the mindful approach can be combined with other common treatments such as medications or cognitive behavioral therapy to enhance self-directed change and improve quality of life.
