Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, and ADHD
KEY POINTS: People with ADHD often have an overactive inner critic and beat themselves up for mistakes. Self-compassion is often more constructive. When upset, being mindful of what one is feeling, acknowledging that others struggle too and being kind to oneself can help. Self-compassion and mindfulness support long-term resilience and can help people manage the stress associated with ADHD.
