Navigating life with ADHD can sometimes feel like trying to solve a puzzle while missing a few key pieces. It’s totally normal to feel overwhelmed, but there are some practical tips and tricks that can help make things a bit easier. Here are some ideas to consider:

Create a Daily Game Plan: Start your day by jotting down a few key tasks or goals. Think of it as completing a quest. Each part of the quest brings you a bit closer to finishing your adventure! Keep it simple and realistic. It can be super satisfying to check things off as you go!

Break it Down: Big tasks can be daunting. Break them into smaller, more manageable chunks. It’s like tackling a level in a video game—you conquer one part at a time!

Embrace the Chaos (a Little): Sometimes, our best ideas come when we’re bouncing between thoughts. Keep a notebook handy for those random sparks of genius. You have a creative super brain, after all. You’ll be amazed at all the things it can think of!

Buddy System: Find a friend or family member who can be your accountability buddy. They can help keep you on track and cheer you on. They don’t even have to be physically with you! Hop on a video call and have someone be there while you work or study. It’s amazing how much this helps keep us on track!

Celebrate Small Wins: Did you remember to grab your keys before leaving the house? Hey, you read five whole pages of your textbook and can kind of remember it! Go ahead, give yourself a little high-five. It’s the small victories that count!

Give Yourself Grace: Some days will be tougher than others, and that’s okay. Give yourself permission to take breaks and recharge when needed. Reach out for mental health counselling and support. Having a counsellor in your corner can lift a lot of weight off your shoulders and make this journey just a tiny bit easier.

Remember, you’re not alone in this. Many others are navigating similar challenges, and together, we can support each other and find ways to thrive! If you’d like to consult with me please feel free to reach out via olena.guseva@strongcounselling.com
