OVERWHELMED! 8 Techniques to Break through the Paralysis Overwhelm is one of the greatest problems experienced by people with ADHD, yet one of the most overlooked.

However, a great deal of the visible problems among ADHD people are a result of those individuals being paralyzed by overwhelm.This session will teach techniques for breaking out of “overwhelm,” the mental state experienced when one’s brain is flooded with thoughts and information, creating mental paralysis in many with ADHD.

Wow! Can you believe 2018 is almost over? That means it is really time to start thinking about and planning for 2019. If you are thinking about planning or beginning to plan for 2019 you are probably considering purchasing a brand new planner.
Planners can be a great tool when you have ADHD, but it’s important you find the best planner for yourself and that you have realistic expectations for the planner. Far too often I have seen people with ADHD get frustrated with themselves and their planners because they rushed into purchasing a planner and expected the wrong things from the planner.
