If you have ADHD or think you might – or if you live with someone who does – you know ADHD can impact just about all areas of your life! These can include: school, career, communicating, relationships, emotional regulation, money management, prioritizing, decision-making, planning, being on time, starting (vs procrastinating) and following through with tasks or projects. It can feel overwhelming!
ADHD can affect some or all of our brain’s executive functions. These functions are referred to as ‘executive’ because they organize, direct, and manage many processes needed to function effectively, as an executive does for a company.
If you have ADHD and feel like you’re stuck at a crossroads in your life, you could benefit from ADHD Coaching.
5 Tips for successful ADHD coaching:
- Be willing to learn and use new ways of thinking and doing things.
- Use scheduling and/or reminder tools. These are different for each person, so you’ll need to use ‘trial and error’ to see which works best for you.
- Decrease distractions by removing clutter and reducing noise in rooms where you spend most of your time.
- Reduce procrastination by breaking down larger tasks/projects into bite-size individual steps.
- Educate yourself on the strengths of ADHD (yes, these DO exist!) and the fact that it has NO relationship to intelligence. Although, some think those with ADHD are more inventive and creative. I’ll leave that up to you to decide!
