Description

Is it possible that the vibrant energy of ADHD can harmonize beautifully with the serene practice of mindful gardening? Kendall Marie Platt, who was diagnosed with ADHD at 36, is living proof that it can. She shares how this diagnosis transformed her life, channeling her dynamic energy into the calming rhythms of gardening. Throughout our conversation, Kendall and I delve into the unique strengths that ADHD brings—such as creativity, hyperfocus, and resilience—discussing how these qualities enhance our lives and the importance of a supportive community in this journey. We explore not just coping with ADHD, but celebrating it, understanding our neurobiology, and fostering a space where personal growth and acceptance flourish.

Kendall, known as The Mindful Gardening Coach, has seen her transformative approach featured in House Beautiful, Bustle, BBC, The Telegraph, and Metro. She empowers women to embrace their bustling minds and create moments of peace through gardening. Having used mindful gardening to manage her vibrant brain for over a decade, Kendall grew up on the South Coast of England and now lives near Reading with her husband and two daughters. Today, she is revolutionizing perceptions of mental well-being, tearing down outdated stigmas, and encouraging overwhelmed women to join her in a mindful gardening revolution.

Whether it’s crafting a personalized gardening plan, choosing swimming over running, or indulging in other relaxing activities, it’s crucial to find what truly works for you. Identifying activities that resonate with your lifestyle is key to living a balanced and fulfilling life with ADHD.
