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...
Hey ADDers! I’m so glad you could join me today, and hope that you’ve taken the time to listen to a few key episodes that seem to be on the minds of many of my listeners; perhaps you are one of them: Episode 036, Ask Dr B About The High Cost Of Not Knowing About Executive Function, Episode 027, Figuring Out Where To Start When So Much Needs Your Attention Now, and Episode 001, It’s Not Your Fault & You’re Not Off The Hook Either. If you’ve listened to all three of these episodes, you know what I’m talking about and if you haven’t I highly recommend that you listen to them soon.
Today, I want to talk about how ADHD and Executive Function Disorder or EFD co-exist and what that looks like. I feel it’s important for me to talk about this because I keep hearing people talk about their ADHD symptoms and they are confusing their ADHD symptoms with their EFD symptoms. So, I want to shed some light on EFD...
Hey ADDers! So glad you could join me for today’s podcast episode. I’ve talked a lot about the challenges of adult life with ADHD, including Executive Function Deficits, and I’ve offered you lots of action steps to take. I’ve also talked about you as the “human being” and not the “human doing.” I got to thinking that I haven’t talked about Strengths, or rather “your strengths” yet and so today’s the day for that. I remember this information was important to me years ago and perhaps it will be important for you as well.
First, a little about what’s right with you. Each of you came to this lifetime with gifts and strengths. Whether you appreciate or value your gifts and strengths is a different issue; however, you have gifts and strengths. That said, accepting what your gifts and strengths are and working with them seems like the best road to personal happiness and success. And I don’t mean accepting...
Welcome to the twentieth Ask Dr B episode, and the forty-fourth episode overall of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast show I created to explore the many facets of adult life with ADHD and how you can learn to harness your personal ADHD power to become unstoppable.
Hey ADDers! I’m so glad you could join me today, and hope that you’ve taken the time to listen to Monday’s episode on H.O.P.E., which stands for Help One Person Everyday and That Person Is YOU! I feel the message is relevant to everyone, whether you live with ADHD or not.
I’ve received a lot of questions lately about the complexities of living with depression, anxiety and/or ADHD, so that’s today’s focus. I’m also going to focus on what family members can do to help a loved one who is suffering with any or all of these.
For you to break free of the limitations of any of these, and have things get better for you, you’re going to need to change your attitude or...
Hey ADDers! I’m so glad you could join me for today. As Jim Rohn said, “For things to change, you have to change.” He was referring to your attitude and your mindset. Seriously! So let’s get to it!
HOPE is essential for you to achieve beyond your current limits. If you don’t have HOPE that your life can be different, then you must borrow my HOPE. I have an abundance of HOPE, and will gladly loan you as much as you need until you have restored your own.
When it comes to HOPE, there are two groups of people: High HOPE people and Low HOPE people. Let me tell you a little bit about each of them. High HOPE people set difficult goals for themselves and have several goals in different life areas at the same time. They embrace their goals and view them as welcome challenges. They use their goals as mental touchstones for success, direct their attention and effort to the demands of the situation, and are spurred on by obstacles to greater effort. They think of...
Welcome to the nineteenth Ask Dr B episode, and the forty-second episode overall of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast show I created to explore the many facets of adult life with ADHD and how you can learn to harness your personal ADHD power to become unstoppable.
I’m so glad you could join me today! I’m trying out a different format today and have two great topics for you as well, so let’s get to it!
Last fall I learned how to go live on video; no small feat for sure. I’ve been pretty consistent since then, and June of this year, I was asked to answer questions for groups and so I opted to do Ask Dr B live videos 3x/week and have done so since June of this year. There have been a lot of great questions I’ve been asked and already responded to and thought I’d start sharing that information with you in the Ask Dr B episodes of my podcast show, so you can benefit from what’s already out there but you might...
Hey ADDers! I’m so glad you could join me today. You know, if you don’t find a way to stay present every day and have some sort of tracking system for your important goals, then your life unfolds in kind of a haphazard way and those important goals might never be realized; which would be awful.
Years ago an anonymous quote came into my life - “Set a goal SO BIG that you can’t achieve it until YOU GROW INTO THE PERSON WHO CAN.” I love this quote because it told me where to focus my efforts.
It’s important to point out here that my focus was on each day, rather than some distant day when I had become the person I needed to be. Instead, day-by-day, I focused on what I could do each day to become more of that person. I asked myself what I could do each day that would advance me closer to becoming more of my best self; how could I challenge myself to strengthen and grow in the direction of becoming more of me. I was developing habits...
Welcome to the eighteenth Ask Dr B episode, and the fortieth episode overall of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast show I created to explore the many facets of adult life with ADHD and how you can learn to harness your personal ADHD power to become unstoppable.
I’m so glad you could join me today!
So, are any of today’s topics a challenge for you? If you’re like most of the adults I know and love, then I already know that the answer is yes. And I’m curious, if you’ve ever wondered “why” these are so challenging for you? I used to wonder and don’t anymore, so let me share a bit about what I’ve figured out about “why” they can be so challenging
First a key piece about neuroplasticity; the brain that continually changes itself. Your brain rapidly prunes disused circuits and strengthens most-used circuits, which means that what you don’t use you do lose to a greater or lesser...
Welcome to the thirty-ninth episode of Harness Your ADHD Power.
I’m so glad you could join me today. One of the episodes you all are listening to the most is 027, figuring out where to start when so much needs your attention now. That said, I decided that it’s important for you to understand what some of the steps are you need to be taking in order to be successful in getting a handle on all the moving parts of your life that need your attention now.
I talk a lot about pre-skills. What do I mean by this term? Pre-skills are whatever skills you need to learn or master in order to do what you want or need to do and you won’t be able to do so without the pre-skills.
I posed a question years ago. It was, if you were able to focus on what you need to focus on, when you need to focus on it, and how you need to focus on it and complete your tasks, AND, if you were able to regulate your moods or emotions when you needed to, and how you needed to so you didn’t become...
Welcome to the seventeenth Ask Dr B episode, and the thirty-eighth episode overall of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast show I created to explore the many facets of adult life with ADHD and how you can learn to harness your personal ADHD power to become unstoppable.
I’m so glad you could join me today. We’ve got four great topics so let’s get to it!
First, since you’re on this journey with me, I want to applaud your courage straight away. Truly! It not only takes courage, but determination and commitment to yourself to get the training you need to rise up and become the person you were intended to become. And it’s worth every bit of the time, effort and energy it takes! I want you to have the life you want for yourself as much as any other person can want something for another. I feel it’s your birthright to have a happy and productive life, and just because you haven’t had it up to now...
