With My ADD ADHD, Boy, Do I Need Structure
Structure is a basic part of coping with ADD ADHD. We need routine, schedule, organization. I always eat three meals a day. Go to bed about the same time each night. Brush my teeth twice a day. Have a quiet time every morning.
Good, that’s structure.
So, What Happened?
Closed my practice, December 2013; the practice had structured most of my week. 2014 was interesting – illness, treatment, moving. Upheaval, disruption, change. Chaos! Started volunteer teaching on Mondays – that was structure, but disrupted the rest of my week. That just ended.
So, What Now?
Well, obviously it’s time to get organized again. That’s easy for you to say.
I kept saying I’d get organized once the treatment was over. Then, once we were moved in. Then, once the teaching ended.
Well, that’s now.
Drawing up a new weekly calendar. Not done yet. But for example:
Mon Tues Wed Thur Fri Sat Sun
Spanish blog marketing write guitar Spanish church
guitar blog clean desk
Those are priorities. I make sure to get at least those things done that day. Then I can do more (theoretically), but I’ll have those things done anyway.
So have I been procrastinating, or just too disorganized to get organized, or can I blame it on circumstances?
Anyway, it’s time to get with it. Now!
