Listen up - Mold isn’t innocent & can really impact your brain & body functions - Episode 047

Hey ADDers!  So glad you could join me for today’s podcast episode.  I shared in the last episode that I was late on the release of episode 46 because of some health challenges last week, and said that I was going to talk about it today.  So, today’s episode is a little different format, however, I trust you will find benefit in the content.

The information I need to share today is relevant whether you have ADHD, executive function deficits, depression, anxiety or physical health challenges.  Why is it important for me to share this?  Because if you aren’t aware of the far-reaching effects of mold (which I wasn’t) and where it can hide and what it can do to your brain and body, you need this information.  And I’m only scratching the surface here.

And it isn’t just water leaks creating mold you need to be thinking of.  Many of the adults I work with have stacks and stacks of papers lying all around because that’s their organizational system.  Dust on papers can contain mold spores; the same with the dust on your walls if you haven’t dusted them recently or ever.  I looked at my walls in that room and then all my rooms and dusted all the walls with something that attracted the dust so it wouldn’t just go flying into the air and make things worse.  And then there are the carpets, rugs, curtains, drapes and any of your fabric furniture, such as a sofa, loveseat, or chair.  I’m lucky there because I only have wood and tile flooring, except for the one or two throw rugs.  And I have very few window coverings because I like the natural light to come in.  I don’t need many window coverings for privacy where I live.  So I didn’t have to get all of those things taken down and cleaned. 

Many of the symptoms of mold exposure can be misdiagnosed as other health conditions and it’s important to know what to look for because it could be a missing piece to your better health and functioning, especially if you experience a foggy brain.

In this episode, I’m going to be talking about mold exposure and it's impact on your mind and body, as well as your canine and feline companions and what you can start to do about it so you can live a healthier, happier and more productive life.

In the ADDventures in Achievement™ program, you’ll benefit from my 30+ years of experience working with adults with ADHD, Executive Function Deficits and many other co-existing conditions in our weekly coaching calls, 2x/month workshops, and a private forum space for deep personal work with other like-minded adults.  You have access to me 6 days a week for support, solutions and accountability.  I don’t believe in Band-Aids that will only disappear down the road.  I believe in helping you move from stuck to unstoppable by getting to the core of whatever you’re missing and need to learn.  We’ve all had a belly full of judgment, criticism and punishment, whether it’s come from others or ourselves.  I encourage you to break free of that life and join us for your ADDventures in Achievement™.  Until then, become part of the Facebook community I created, The Harness Your ADHD Power Community, where I generally go live once a week for Q & A about your most pressing issues as an adult with ADHD.

A Favorite Quote:

Zig Ziglar said, “Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions.  The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.”  The question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “Will you take the time today to look at all your WINS and things that you could be grateful for about your circumstances and yourself and celebrate them?”  I hope so.  It’s totally worth it!!
