Like a fish in water, this is all we know - 075

We have a multi-dimensional mental health problem in the world. Many professionals aren’t trained to recognize nor address issues with ADHD or executive function training. Our family members might have had the same challenges we experience and just made the best of them. And of course, whatever they modeled for us is what we learned. Plus, nowhere along the way was it ever mentioned that we could do something about these challenges ourselves – even without a diagnosis!

Prescribers aren’t recommending executive function skills training. Therapists aren’t recommending executive function skills training. Colleges aren’t recommending or offering executive function skills training; neither are employers. So, if all the main people in your life weren’t making these recommendations, why would you even know or consider this as something you can do for yourself?

In this episode Dr B talks about:

  • Multi-dimensional mental health problem in the world
  • Importance of executive function skills training with scaffolding support
  • Self-care beyond skills training - hydration, nutrients, movement, and more
  • The importance of celebrating your wins

My mission is to put an end to the worldwide needless suffering of adults with ADHD and those with under-developed Executive Function Skills - whether from ADHD, chronic depression or anxiety, trauma, addictions or chronic illnesses.  And, you don't need a formal diagnosis to know you need help developing these executive function skills in order to greatly reduce your suffering.

A Favorite Quote:

Kahlil Gibran said, “Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it.” We can only control ourselves, no matter how much training we undertake; not other people, places or things. We need to cultivate a mindset of acceptance for that which we cannot control and take action on that which we can, without hesitation, least the window of opportunity pass us by.

Are you willing to accept what is outside of your control, so you can focus your time, effort and energy on being mindful of who you are becoming on the way to where it is that you are going? I hope so.
