Not a Wrong Way to Meditate and How it Helps ADHD

Not a Wrong Way to Meditate and How it Helps ADHD

Posted on: January 10th, 2018 by Neurohealth Associates

Let’s first address the nagging lie that bothers individuals just getting into meditation or even “meditation-veterans.”

I must do it in this position, have these thoughts (or lack thereof), focus on this mantra, etc.

The fact of the matter is that in the school of thought we are drawing from there is no wrong way to meditate IF you are doing it. We are not trying to get super philosophical here or anything, the point to stress is just do something.

Some helpful things that just may end up being your cup of tea are:

  • Stop whatever is stressful and try to be as still as you can.
  • Breathe slowly.
  • Tell yourself as many times as need be that you are learning and avoid grading yourself.
  • Do not overthink it.
  • Do not go too big too fast. Start with 3 minutes or even 1 minute, then work your way up to more time as you learn.
  • Make it a habit.

What Clients Say About Us


Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
