For living with ADD or ADHD we need strategies, and here’s the ones I used to get unfrazzled, as promised in Tip 367.
First, obviously, reverse the causes of frazzled:
So got more sleep, took a nap. Too cold to go outdoors, but did more sitting, in front of the big window. Muscle still pulled, so didn’t exercise (but that was just an excuse: I could’ve done something;just not what I wanted to).
Used other strategies, mainly for the overloaded:
Made very very long list of all the to-do things. Long.
Picked three, made list of three. Picked one, made list of one.
Did that. Then did another one
Doing this, combined with the other strategies, made the overloaded feeling go away.
I am a psychiatric physician.
I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better.
