When you have ADHD, you often know what you should do and why you should do it. And yet, you still don’t do it. Ugh. This week on the podcast, I’m sharing a mini-series on Goal Setting with ADHD. But I’m not talking about the usual advice about consistency and breaking it down into steps. You’ve heard all that before. We’re talking about how to mak…

When a thought pops in your head, do you feel like you need to do something with it right away or else you’ll forget? That whack-a-mole thinking is a stressful way to live. Not everything we think of is both urgent and important. Actually, most things are not important and very few are urgent. But how do we determine what really matters? Prioritizi…
 
Maybe you’re not as terrible as you think. Do you often explain away your achievements? You got that new job by sheer luck… Not sure how you won that award…Must have been a fluke!

It’s an awkward place to be. …Maybe you're making up rul…

I recently got rejected from something that mattered to me. And it stunk. RSD (rejection sensitivity dysphoria) and trauma response all rolled into one giant ball of suck. One of the hardest parts of parenting is talking to our kids about hard things, like rejection, sadness, and disappointment especially when we don’t feel like we are good at thos…

No wonder you’re exhausted before you even get…

Today I'm explaining what I do when I walk in the door after a long day. Before the chaos really takes off, I take a few minutes to sort the clutter of backpacks, diaper bags, lunch boxes, and work bags and prepare for the next day. This gives me less to do before bed and keeps the to-do list short in the mornings. Starting this chain of events set…

Stimulant medication for ADHD is a hot-button topic. Everyone has something to say -- your friends, your coworkers, your uncle's cousin's brother's barber, and of course, the internet.

What does your ADHD look like? Does it look like impulsiveness, hyperactivity and the irresistible urge to fidget – the signs we constantly hear about in men and boys?

True or false: we all have the same 24 hours in a day…? If you said FALSE, you're 100% right, mama. Sure, we have 24 physical hours.

Do you struggle with reading or math? Do you lose your place easily when working? Is reading sheet music ridiculously hard? Well, it might not be your eyes OR your ADHD, mama.
