Welcome to the ADHD strategist where we come together to talk about living with ADHD. We are here to discuss the challenges and applying strategies that we face living with the disorder in ourselves or our family and how to stay in control with our lives. I

Online schooling can be great because you can work at your own pace but it can also be difficult when you’re needing extra support or you’re needing to make sure that you’re getting things done for accountability. I have three questions today that I’ve been asked recently that I want to share with you and I hope that I’ll help you and your experience with this online schooling.

1. Do I need to enforce where
my student studies?

2. My student takes forever
to do their work,
is there something I can do
to help them be faster?

3. My student gets frustrated
so easily and gives up before
he/she can get help,
what can I do?

Coronavirus Pandemic & Your ADHD Creativity

The Coronavirus Pandemic Needs Your ADHD Creativity

Calling all creatives and out of the box thinkers!
If you are following me and reading this then that is YOU.
We are in a time that calls for us to tap into our inner creative energy to navigate through our current world crisis.
How do we respond to our duty to protect our vulnerable and go about our daily business while minimizing the hysteria?
What can we do to slow our movement and isolate ourselves yet remain productive in our career paths while managing our anxiety?
How do stay engaged with our family, friends and co-workers and protect ourselves while managing our fears?
The way we handle the stress that the pandemic is causing our world will determine how we recover from the overall effect it is currently having on ALL OF OUR LIVES.
This demonstrates more than ever our ONE WORLD ECONOMY and need for global solutions.
When times have been tough in my life whether it be in work, child rearing or personal matters, I got through many days with this mantra.

“This Too Shall Pass.”

It gave me a sense of calm and foresight that there was a light at the end of the tunnel of this Coronavirus Pandemic. (COVID-19)
How can we CREATIVELY steer our lives NOW in the most sensible direction for when it does pass?

You Do You and Be A Frootloop

You Do You!
.

Embrace all of what makes you unique and go with it.
.
It is precisely this mentality that will allow you to excel and shine in this very competitive world.
.

But HOW? It is so hard when my whole life I have been told to act a certain way or do a certain thing.
.

Tip:
.
Go on a mental journey to when you were young enough to not care what you did or how you acted and get in touch with what your innate interests and personality was like then.
.

Often you here people refer to successful people like this….
.
”They always were doing ________ .
.
From a young age they had ___________interests.
.
Fill in the blank with what that was for you!
.

For me, you could find me wandering around our blackberry infested backyard eating the plump fruit while building intricate villages out of random sticks, leaves and insects I found.
.
I was building my world and creating for hours.
.
I still have this desire to create and be in touch with nature and incorporate it into my work.
.
What about you? What makes you wonderfully different?
.
You Do You
.

Be A Frootloop in a bowl of Cheerios!

Your ADHD  Mind Needs This

Your ADHD  Mind, Body & Soul Needs You To Get Outside!

Spring is around the corner and is the perfect time for exploring the great outdoors; camping, swimming, running or any sport that gets you outside.   Make this season the most by using this opportune time to delve into activities that utilize excess energy so common with ADHD. It may just benefit your ability to focus as well. This is great advice for all and especially for people the ADHD mind.

Exercise has a positive effect on harnessing the ability to focus on things that may appear mundane to people with ADHD. Through diet and exercise, certain feel good hormones, endorphins, are released that may help someone with ADHD focus on the tasks they do not enjoy.  So, start enjoying this spring lots of outdoor or physical activities.

Exercise turns on the attention system, the so-called executive functions — sequencing, working memory, prioritizing, inhibiting, and sustaining attention,”….. “On a practical level, it causes one to be less impulsive, which makes them more primed to learn.

Finding the right routine may be the key to developing a long-term exercise commitment. List activities you feel may be something you could enjoy.  It is always helpful to see what activities would be a natural fit  by taking into account body size and type.  There are fun online quizzes to test your interests and body type in choosing a new activity such as doctoroz.com/quiz
