When you have ADHD, it might seem like you hear a lot of negative feedback. Much of this feedback may even be from yourself.
There are many different names for this, but the name is not important. It is simply that voice in your head that tends to tell you what you cannot do. If this is the case for you, chances are that this can affect the focus you need to work on your goals and other priorities.
Take a minute today and see what you can reframe from a positive direction. How can you make that voice give you some positive feedback?
To help you focus today, set a timer each hour as a reminder to take 5 deep breathes.
Try It Now
Did it help you refocus and maybe get a little more energized. ADHD may cause you to feel like you are always rushing. Periodically slowing down and taking deep breathes just might be what you need to regain some calm and refocus on your priorities.

I have read that our brains are made up of 75 – 90% water. It makes sense, but it surprised me that it ws this high. What do you think? Are you surprised?
Among all the other benefits of drinking water, it may also help us to be more focused. Dehydration can also lead to headaches which definitely cause us to lose focus. Give it a try today. Drink water and see if you feel more focused. Let us know how it goes!
