    My ADHD has always made sticking to routines difficult, and writing manageable to-do lists is tough as well. My always racing, creative brain often thinks I can accomplish far more than 24 hours (even without sleep) will allow. So, I’ve learned to alleviate the resultant anxiety by stopping, centering, and choosing what I want to do next toward my goal. Sometimes a few slow breaths is enough to remind me–I am enough, and the direction is what is important, not the numbers of checked off tasks on my list…internal or otherwise. Sometimes, the next thing to do is take a break, which I’m learning to do, sometimes more successfully than others.

    • I like the idea of stopping, centering, and choosing the next step. Here’s a quote you may enjoy: “No matter how long your journey appears to be, there is never more than this; one step, one breath, one moment–now.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
