You can read the background for this post here. Piers, my 8yo, took the following pictures yesterday after I asked him to give me some space. I wasn't especially upset, but I was dealing with a lot at once, some of which was frustrating and a bit challenging, and I simply needed to breathe. … Continue reading A Glimpse of ADHD in Pictures
Stop, Drop, and Meditate
How many of you meditate? Do tell. What's your approach? Do you use an app? Do you go to a meditation group? Do you like guided meditation? TM -- Transcendental Meditation?
