the little things that dont matter and focus on what matters I drive my family crazy they are always telling me to relax
Try to live in the moment, the past is gone, the future has not happened yet, so attempt to enjoy just this moment in time. Also meditation might help you, have you ever tried it?
I see you added adhd to your question, are you on medication for it? Or do you suspect you have adhd? If so, see your doc about this, there are meds available that truly help those suffering from adhd.
Best wishes to you,
I understand where you're coming from.Its easy to be told to relax if you could you would and from my own experience someone telling you to relax all the time,it just makes it worse.But as the others said try look on the bright side of things,try to enjoy what you have at present. I know its not easy-far from it but try it and also maybe relaxation techniques,have you tried those?
Best of luck with it all
Just a little thought, stay away from caffeine! Coffee, soda pop, energy drinks, etc.. I was drinking 2 cups of coffee & taking 2 Excedrin every morning. The excedrin has 65mg of caffeine each plus the coffee. I was wired to say the least! Drove my hubby nuts. I quit the Excedrin & went to Tylenol, & the difference is amazing. I was taking the Excedrin because of my arthritis, but it was tearing up my tummy. Good luck to you, hope this little hint helps.
I am notorious for always being ansty and can't even sit for a moment. The only time is when I'm at the computer on this site, it really calms my worries. But what I wanted to say is journaling and excersise help me. Journaling keeps some of my worries on paper and therefore I don't have to worry about forgetting about what i'm worrying about (does that even make sense?) and I can always go to it on my own time. And walking the dog at a brisk pace is reasonable (instead of telling myself ok today i'll run a mile!!), but when I get back home I actually feel like I've accomplished something good. Of course it doesn't last but I am trying to get into deep breathing like the other posts say, since finding this site. At least 10 minutes a day they say is beneficial. Hope any of this helps.

Yoga, Tai Chi, and meditation are good for some to learn to relax. There are many ways and you will have to try a few to see what works for you best. There are some good resources online. You can also look into biofeedback, imaging and others. I use imaging sometimes and it works for me especially when trying to drop off to sleep. I use it to turn my brain away from thoughts that will keep me awake. I think about a place I would like to be that is calm, like the ocean or a quiet forest and I concentrate in my mind about imagining all the details of how things look, sound and smell. After awhile I usually drop off to sleep. If I wake up in a few hours I try again. It is what I've found that works well for me. Do some research and try what sounds of most interest to you, see what works best. It is much better to turn to these remedies rather than relying on medications. Medications have their place and are needed sometimes but they can become a crutch if you are not careful and anxiolytics like benzodiazapines are some off the worst drugs to become addicted to.
