ADHD-Friendly Mindfulness (yes, it's possible!) with Dr Lidia Zylowska MD

By Kate Moryoussef

Using mindfulness to help our ADHD shouldn't work but actually, it can be the perfect antidote to our restless, reactive brains - as long as we're open to being more present and self-compassionate.

Kate’s guest this week is Dr Lidia Zylowska MD, an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and is an internationally recognised expert in adult ADHD and mindfulness-based therapies. Her research pioneered the application of mindfulness in ADHD, helped co-found the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center and has been featured in ADDitude Magazine, Time Magazine, Boston Globe and New York Times. 

Dr Zylowska is also an author of two books, The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD and Mindfulness for Adult ADHD - A Clinician’s Guide.

During the episode, Kate and Lidia talk about: 

Compassionate and non-violent communicationManaging emotional regulation using ADHD-friendly mindfulness toolsHow to communicate your feelings without conflict and judgementMindfulness and feeling present beyond meditationWhat mindfulness can look and feel like with ADHDThe benefits of regular mindfulness practise for those with ADHDHow to integrate self-compassion and mindfulness into daily practice.
