    allows us to participate and be present in our lives We learn to savor our experiences as we stop and bring awareness to the moment I like to reference Carly Simon s song Anticipation There are potent words I m going to stay right here cause these are the good old days One day we will look back at a moment remembering what it was like but did we truly experience it at the time It is important that we learn to check in using mindfulness techniques regularly throughout the day to be sure we are truly in the moment and present for the experience I especially remember a day this past winter I went skiing with my son and my grandson for the first time My grandson was 5 and really getting it was what I had heard There were several times when I reminded myself to stop and soak in the experience Not just the skiing conditions and mountain but also the fact that I was one lucky lady to be here on this day with my son and his son As I mentioned earlier mindfulness teaches us to be curious and kind to ourselves and others A key to mindfulness is the development of a non judgmental awareness We develop the skill to become an impartial observer of our own thoughts We learn to look for our wins no matter how big or small We begin to appreciate and accept ourselves wherever we are in our process We appreciate and become curious about the wonder that is us And finally once again we learn that there is an internal environment that is calm and peaceful A resource that is always there beneath the surface that we have experienced and can tap into We begin to experience moments of clarity when the internal chatter quiets down I hope that this piques your interest Know that your life can be an exciting and meaningful journey and that you can learn ways to be present for it yourself and the people in it Mindfulness Programs are available at the Hallowell Centers Posted in ADHD Hallowell Centers News 1 Comment Friday October 5th 2012 ADHD Awareness Week Presentations at The Hallowell Center in Sudbury Oct 16 18 2012 ADHD Awareness week at The Hallowell Center in Sudbury Children and Adults with ADHD Strategies for Success Seats are filling up register today 978 287 0810 x117 For more information click here Tuesday October 16 7 9p m Dr Edward Hallowell His philosophy and overview Ned Bliss LICSW Enhancing teenage self esteem Carol Montgomery Ph D Neurobehavioral solutions Dr Sarah Reiff Hekking Ph D Coaching to build structure Wednesday October 17 7 9p m David Keevil Psy D How psychotherapy can help ADHD Beth Davis LICSW Self medication and self care Saumya Sharma Neuropsychological testing and transition planning Thursday October 18 7 9p m Dr Teresa Kohlenberg Medications diet supplements Rebecca Shafir M A CCC Alternative approaches executive function training Shelley MacLeod LICSW

  • Misc « Dr Hallowell ADHD and mental and cognitive health
    we can define until we actually try to do it If you poll a group of ten people you will get ten different definitions My own definition of forgiveness draws upon the Greek root from which the word derives Originally to forgive meant to set free As I define it when you forgive someone else you set yourself free of the hold that anger and resentment exert over you It does not mean by my definition that you set free the criminal or that you allow the batterer back into your life or that you love or even like the person who hurt you It simply means that you do all that you can to let go of the anger and resentment that have built up inside of you thereby setting yourself free In this sense forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself Of course aA person cannot snap his or her fingers and forgive then and there Forgiveness is a process not a moment The deeper the hurt the longer the process can take But if you commit yourself to a path to forgiveness you will be much better off than if you commit yourself to a path to revenge Even if you never get there you will be better off on the path to forgiveness than on the path to revenge Forgiveness can be mysterious It can come when we least expect it or we can search for years but never find it Each individual must find his or her won way to forgiveness but I offer the following four steps to suggest a way First of all feel the pain You must acknowledge how you have been hurt Second talk to selected people you trust and relive and reflect upon what happened You need to talk it out to help put it into perspective Third ask yourself the question What do I want this pain to turn into If your answer is something like peace or growth or wisdom you are on your way Now start trying to spit the hook of anger and resentment that is stuck inside you This can take time Keep talking to others Consider how you yourself need forgiveness Also consider how you might be acting like a fool by holding onto your anger Keep working on it and you probably will be able to spit the hook Fourth take stock move on and teach others what you have learned about how to forgive This world needs help in learning the practical skill of forgiveness Once you have learned it teach others what you know What worked for you will not necessarily work for them but your example will most surely help So Dare to Forgive and set yourself free Posted in Misc No Comments Wednesday August 26th 2009 Dr Hallowell awarded the prestigious 2009 Sally L Smith Founder s Award It was announced nationally today that Dr Edward M Hallowell would be awarded the prestigious Sally M Smith Founder s
