Mindfulness for ADHD Meets Tuesday Mornings  9:30-10:30 am Nov 28, December 5, 12, 19, 2017

 

Trish invites adults who have experience with silent mindfulness or meditation and are able to sustain their practice for 30 minutes or more in a group setting. Some practices will be guided while others will involve self-managed focused awareness of breath, sound or inquiry into their thoughts. Most sessions are done seated but occasionally we may stand or do the very simple movement.

Mindfulness has been shown to help develop the areas of the brain related to focus, self-regulation and impulsivity, self-awareness, positive mind states and general well being or contentment. 

Mindfulness practices, when done consistently, can build skill for noticing reactivity, difficult emotions, racing thoughts and distraction and provide tools for responding to these in more calm, conscious and thoughtful ways.

We meet Tuesdays in Nov. and Dec. (no Session on 12/26) from 9:30-10:30 in room 127 @ 20 Nassau Street, Princeton

$50 for 4 sessions, $25 for 2 sessions.

Thank you all for coming out for today's discussion of Food and Mood.  Personally, I am very grateful to Dorothy for her wisdom and willingness to respond to the many questions posed today.  Soon after I returned home, I found this email from Dorothy, who wants to make sure you have access to the information that will help you make positive changes.   I highly recommend participation in the Suppers Program.  The website is easy to navigate and you can find a myriad of meeting options listed there.  

 

Dorothy's message follows

 

"In particular, I'd like to call attention to a link on the Suppers website for "Nutritional Harm Reduction", tips for parents.  

 

http://www.thesuppersprograms.org/content/nutritional-harm-reduction-tips-suppers-families-who-have-succeeded-household-changes

 

We have a moms meeting, one Wednesday lunch per month, where we work on strategies for improving the family eating habits. People can request that I place them on the invitation list or sign up to attend the next meeting. http://www.thesuppersprograms.org/programs/calendar/dors-lunch-moms/2017-12-6

 

Please let your attendees know that Suppers has relevant meetings for just about everyone in the room and that I'm happy to respond individually with suggestions about which meeting lists to join.  

 

Thanks for the opportunity to share my understanding. Dor Mullen"
