The Holidays are supposed to be Joyful
But with ADHD, they can be just extra challenging.
Did you procrastinate on getting the gifts or the cards?
Does the prospect of making choices and decisions terrify you?
Are you having trouble using unscheduled free time?
Are the memories of previous holidays making you feel depressed?
Does the prospect of another ‘joyful gathering’ with your family fill you with dread?
Well, welcome to the group. The holidays are stressful and distressing to many people, and probably more with ADHD.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you.
- Remember to use your basic ADHD strategies – sometimes we forget.
- Cut down – set smaller goals, do less.
- Remember that you do not Have To do anything you really don’t want to. Think about it; you really don’t Have To.
- Be sure to watch the movie, Home for the Holidays. This is one of our annual traditions.
