Meditation and distractions

Hi,

I've been trying to meditate, but I get distracted almost all the time.

Do ADDers have a greater difficulty meditating than others?

Re: Meditation and distractions

I know I do. I've found active meditation works better for me. While mowing
the yard, or washing the dishes, or just rocking or walking, I let my mind be
free. I don't try to empty it of all thoughts, I let whatever needs to be thought
about come to the surface.
