Why Use Strategies and Habits for ADHD? — ADHD Tip O the Day 919

Insights on living with ADHD:

I finished another retreat and again gained some insights, some of which I’ll share with you.

The purpose of the ADHD strategies and the habits is to make your life easier, to decrease pressure and busyness, and to decrease frustration.   And maybe even the big internal flywheel can slow down. Or maybe even stop? 

The purpose of the strategies and habits approach is  not to make us more productive,  to accomplish more, to get even busier. It’s to make us more efficient, so that we’ll have time to relax, to enjoy life, to practice being  and not just doing.

Books I recommend:

Present Over Perfect -Niequist  (Spiritual, but if you are not, you could still get a lot out of it.)

Atomic Habits  -Jame Clear – I write about habits a lot, but Clear has a whole book about them with great detail.

Maybe You Should Talk with Someone – Lori Gottlieb – about therapy, one particular form.

About doug with ADHD

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. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
