If you often find yourself feeling fatigued after making numerous decisions, you’re not alone. Decision fatigue is a common challenge for individuals with ADHD. However, it is important to note that there are strategies available to effectively manage this issue.
When it comes to managing emotions and impulsivity, mindfulness has shown promise. Mindfulness helps individuals with ADHD “Anchor their Attention” and regain balance amidst the symptoms. Even a brief one-minute mindfulness practice can help settle a restless mind affected by ADHD.
If you want to enhance your skills, the STG eight-week program is based on Mindfulness Awareness Practices (MAPs) for ADHD. This program provides a comprehensive understanding of the causes and treatments for ADHD, along with insights into the neuroscience involved. It also includes mindfulness-based interventions and addresses the impact of ADHD on daily life management. Clients are guided through mindful exercises to improve concentration, which can be particularly challenging for individuals with ADHD or those new to meditation.
Mindfulness may seem straightforward, but many people go through life with a limited perspective, often getting caught up in their thoughts and losing sight of the present moment. Specially modified exercises are designed to accommodate those with busy and disorganized minds, making stillness or “emptying the mind” unnecessary. While medication is often effective for many individuals with ADHD, exploring and developing additional skills that can complement or substitute medication is necessary.
This program could benefit you if you have been struggling with attention, focus, and impulse control, negatively impacting your life. It aims to help you overcome feelings of overwhelm and emotional distress while simultaneously working on executive functions such as organizing, planning, and problem-solving. The ultimate goal is to boost your confidence in various aspects of life, including relationships and work.
When the above-described program does not result in the desired changes, STG La Ronge can assist with a second-level ADHD psychotherapy program. This program is also evidence-based but requires additional sessions to be implemented correctly. In addition, your therapist would need to work with your physician to coordinate medication, emotion, and behaviour management.
Don’t let decision fatigue and emotional distress hold you back any longer. By participating in this eight-week class, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of ADHD causes and treatments and the neuroscience behind it all. Learn how mindfulness-based interventions can significantly impact your daily life management.
