Fidgeting Is Good For Focus

This may sound crazy, fidgeting is very good for concentration and focus! Sounds crazy, but just like so many things in ADHD, the paradox is valid.

Useful Tips To Keep Your Home More Organised

Some really useful household tips for you to try to keep your ADHD home better managed.

Food

  • Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.
  • Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not go mouldy!
  • Add a teaspoon of water when frying beef mince. It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.
  • Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.
  • Heat leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove; set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the food channel and it really works.
  • Easy devilled eggs. Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal and mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the bag; squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done - easy clean up.
  • Reheating refrigerated bread and to warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in A microwave next to a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

My ADHD Coaching Journey: 17

Shyness and ADHD

Throughout my childhood I was labelled painfully shy.

In class I wouldn't ask questions or volunteer answers, oral exams were terrifying and going into a shop which wasn't self service was something I avoided as much as possible.

I missed out on so many opportunities because I refused to participate. I was afraid of everyone and terrified of making a fool of myself.

This description from Wikipedia perfectly describes who I was.

Cellphones as classroom tools

Having ADHD I am interested in so many topics and two which are close to my heart are education and technology. 

I am not an Educator and my children finished school many years ago but I have become increasingly fascinated by educational methods and the use of technology in schools.

Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have fuelled this passion by enabling me to "eavesdrop" on group discussions and learn from experts worldwide who freely share their knowledge. For me this is true education. Sharing knowledge and encouraging our youth to broaden their minds and not be limited by school curriculums is what we should be aiming for.

One of the recent topics I eavesdropped on was the debate about using cell phones in the classroom.

Communication and ADHD

Speak up!  Be quiet!
Look at me when I speak to you!
That is not what I said!  Don't lie!

How many of the above are common in your ADHD family or classroom?

ADHD and Conflict

A very dear friend who has ADHD burst into tears the other day while we were chatting. "Why do I fight with everybody? When I look back on my life, it has been filled with conflict", she wept.

Many ADDers can identify with her anguish. We destroy personal and work relationships with our volatile personalities. It is as though we deliberately go into a self destruct mode but don't know how to stop.

So why are we so volatile? My AHAA light bulb moment came during one of my Living ADDventure® ADHD Coaching sessions. At the core of the problem is my visual, movie making mind; a typical ADHD characteristic.

Somebody says or does something that our supersensitive souls do not like. It is quite possible that we may not have heard correctly or we don't understand the context; it becomes instantly personal! When our self esteem is low, everything becomes personal.

We make a snap judgement based on our own personal belief systems or some past experience and either impulsively explode or equally dangerous, brood and brood and brood.
