I heard about the positive effects of meditation and tried it over the summer. However, it is something I just recently started incorporating into my daily routine. On school days, I have been doing one before bed, and I have been setting my alarm 10 minutes early to do one as I wake up. I have been going to bed at night and been able to get out of bed so much quicker when I do this. I have really enjoyed doing this because it is such a relaxing way to end and start my day. If you didn't know meditation can help with stress, anxiety, focus, dealing with pain, and strengthening your memory (I am not a scientist, so none of the studies behind this are mine. I have included some links to articles about the benefits of meditation below). Because of its positive effect on productivity especially for people with ADHD, I tried a 3 minute meditation on focus and attention a few days ago. I was more productive and actually got a lot more done than I expected to do that day. I think it was because I was able to clear my mind which helped decrease the amount of random thoughts that distract my focus. There are so many different meditation videos on YouTube that help with a bunch of different things and vary in length (the ones I have been doing have been 2-15 minutes). I will link some different ones at the bottom. Overall, I think squeezing a few minutes of meditation into your day can be very beneficial, and I have really enjoyed having it in mine.
