Q: Is there an app that will help with mindfulness, to slow my mind down and help me do it several times a day?
To be honest I’ve never found one particular app that helped me with mindfulness. I consider mindfulness and meditation as separate. I want to be mindful of my thinking and my behavior. I’m not as committed to meditation, LOL.
But I do “get” your desire to slow down your mind. I deal with a lot of racing thoughts myself.
At this point I have only one app – the Calm app. I have listened to more sleep stories than actual meditations because my mind races when it’s not otherwise occupied. I also listen to a lot of books on audible, because that works better for me than trying to clear my mind.
Many people tell me they enjoy Headspace. I’m pretty sure you can train yourself to meditate on there.
Most of the apps have a feature where you can get an audible reminder, if you want to do it a few times per day.
First, I’d decide what mindfulness means to you. If it means meditation, then you can look at those apps. If you’re looking for more self-awareness, you might not need an app at all. You might want to work with a coach, or talk to others living with ADHD.
