A person with ADHD is, first and foremost, a person. If you are also a person, you might enjoy the content of this blog. 😉
This is particularly true if you have ever experienced any of the following “symptoms”:
- You have procrastinated
- You’ve gotten distracted
- You’ve been forgetful
- You’ve struggled to get organized
- You’ve struggled to prioritize
- You’ve felt overwhelmed or “scattered”
- You’ve been disappointed in how little you accomplished
Also if you:
- Care about someone with ADHD and want to understand how to better relate to or assist them (good for you!)
- Have imagination and can apply wisdom from someone else’s life to your own life, even though you don’t have exactly the same life! 😀
What if I don’t even believe ADHD is real?
- That’s nothing we need to quarrel about. Consider any mention of ADHD to be shorthand for regular people who struggle sometimes with executive functioning skills (see list of “symptoms”, above). I believe the struggle is more or less universal, especially now that we have devices that can soothe and distract us at any time of day or night.
- I don’t plan to promote any specific dietary or pharmaceutical intervention, or even natural remedies. I will leave that part of the discussion to the professionals.
- I do encourage people to do some things for their general well being (such as regular sleep, exercise, developing confidence, nurturing healthy relationships, etc.)
So, if you are someone who has a general fascination with the human brain and behavior and would enjoy reading a unique perspective on the subject, or better yet if you want real-life strategies to apply what you’ve learned, then WELCOME! This blog is for you
My aim is to share habits, strategies and coping skills that can help shape positive mindset and behavior. I feel that focus on these areas is a necessary part of any person overcoming any obstacle, whatever their struggle may be.
