More “Being” and Less “Doing”

ID-100260945Having lived in six different countries, I can say that our culture is primarily a “to do” culture versus a “to be” one. I believe that both of those are important and necessary, but what is missing out here is the balance between the two. In the case of a family with one or more members diagnosed with ADHD, the balance between the “to do” and “to be” is extremely important. Family members should have some down time both together and independently in order to best take care of themselves, their family and to be able to enjoy each other. Although being active is extremely important for individual with ADHD, so too is the quiet time. I suggest that you give it a try for a few weeks and see how the family dynamic changes for the better.
