ADDitude
We can do exercises that build our "patience muscles." Being patient is uncomfortable for many people with ADHD, since we don't know how to do it or don't do it often enough for it to be a habit.

7 Ways To Practice Mindfulness In The Age Of Technology | ADHD | Scoop.it

(From the article): Here are seven ways you can practice mindfulness with your technology platforms. Try these practices as an experiment to raise your own awareness. Refrain from judging yourself or being too harsh about how these practices work for you. These exercises are intended to raise awareness by simply being aware.

Some great practices to help ensure our technological gadgets serve us rather than the other way round.
Annette Schmeling's curator insight, January 16, 2013 12:14 PM

Technology can be an anxiety-producing energy depending on our approach. How we discipline ourselves and think about the daily onslaught of e-mail, voicemail, and text messages impacts how much we are truly connected or disconnected in our life. Mindfulness practices recommended in this article are very practical and impacts the quality of connections between people and their capacity to feel seen, heard and valued.

Cuidado con trivializar el tema de la falta de atención o dispersión en los chicos. El TDAH no existe como trastorno, poco antes de morir su "descubridor", el Dr. León Eisenberg, reconoció que el TDAH era una enfermedad ficticia inventada por él. Pero hay una cultura de la distracción que es innegable y que no es un "nuevo modo cognitivo".

Revisiting the inner lives of teenagers with ADHD three years later @pensf

Revisiting the inner lives of teenagers with ADHD three years later @pensf | ADHD | Scoop.it

"Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder affects 8.4 percent of school-age children in the US. If you have ADHD, you already know what that means. It makes you restless. It makes it hard to focus. It makes it hard to stayfocused, hard to pay attention, and hard to control your behavior, even if you want to. In 2010, we brought you a whole show focused on ADHD and its effects. We spoke with four San Francisco teenagers living with ADHD about how they managed from day to day.
