Executive Function Skill of Shifting - It's Really Important to Master - Episode 060

Hey ADDers! Do you have trouble “shifting” from your current task to the next task? Or maybe you have the opposite problem – where you are shifting way too quickly from thing to thing and leaving a trail of unfinished tasks in your wake. Even though most of the executive function assessments typically look at the behavioral stuff, like moving with ease from one situation, activity or aspect of a problem to another as the circumstances require, to me there is so much more to understanding Shifting than just the behavioral manifestations. What about Shifting your thoughts and feelings? By that I mean, do your thoughts and feelings seem to get stuck and just keep presenting you with the same stuff over and over again? Do you want to think or feel differently yet can’t seem to shift?

If I'm describing your life, then this episode is for you!!

In this episode, I talk about:

  • What is behavioral Shifting and how you can start to develop it
  • What is thinking Shifting and how you can start to develop it
  • What is emotional Shifting and how you can start to develop it
  • What is excessive Shifting and how you can start to develop it
  • New Programs Coming Soon - Couples in Motion & ADDventures Companion

Albert Camus said, “There is no happiness if the things we believe in are different than the things we do.” So, the question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “Are you spending your precious irreplaceable time being and doing what you believe in? I hope so because this is your life we are talking about!!!
