Weekly Tip for Living Well with Adult ADHD – April 20, 2017
Occasionally you leave the house and forget to bring along your ADHD medication. You want to be responsible and take your medication on schedule, and you don’t want to create unnecessary stress or drama for yourself or anyone else because of your forgetfulness.
Store a few of your pills in the glove compartment of your car or in your purse, backpack or briefcase for such emergencies. When you use up your emergency stash, refill it immediately.
Each month, you and your spouse or partner reserve quality time for your regular financial meeting. As someone with Adult ADHD, you’re anxious before the meeting because your spouse or partner manages your joint finances and you know it’s all you can do to stay awake during these sessions.You know it’s important for your relationship and for your financial security to participate in the meeting, but you’re looking for a workable strategy to stay engaged during the process.
Ask your spouse or partner to organize the meeting with an agenda, and you run the meeting so you have no choice but to be actively involved.
During her 2017 Success with ADHD Telesummit, Laurie Dupar of Coaching for ADHD interviewed Tara McGillicuddy of ADDClasses and ADHD Support Talk Radio on the topic of Adult ADHD Affirmations.
Tara shared that the words and thoughts we use everyday impact our overall success, productivity, health, and well-being. Certainly, this principle applies to everyone. In particular, focusing on thoughts is especially important for people with Adult ADHD because failures in life often come with big doses of negativity.
If you have Adult ADHD, affirmations can be a powerful coping tool. You’re more likely to have negative results if you use negative words. However, if you use positive words you are more likely to improve your chances of success.
