Ask Dr B - about Intense Feelings, Over-Committing & Depression - Episode 020

Welcome to the eighth Ask Dr B episode, and the twentieth 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 for my podcast show.  It’s time to change things up a bit so you don’t get in a rut and stop paying attention in the moment because you anticipate what’s coming next.  Yup!  There’s definitely comfort in knowing what to expect, and it can also sabotage your attention and focus. 

So, what questions did you wake up with this morning?  What tasks are you dreading because you have questions about what to do, when to do it, how to do it or if you even should do it? 

Kind of summing it up, the question I’m wondering about this morning is:  What is the #1 biggest struggle or frustration you have right now?  I...

Busting The Clutter Cluster & Making Room To Think - Episode 019

clutter room to think Jun 26, 2017

Welcome to the nineteenth episode 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.

MAKE YOUR NEEDS KNOW TO ME!  CLICK HERE to participate; takes just a few minutes.

Today’s episode was inspired by the many conversations I’ve been having lately about clutter, and the 3 realms – mental, emotional, and physical clutter.  By definition, clutter is: a confused or disordered state or collection; a jumble, crowded, or a collection of things lying about in an untidy mass.  The “confused or disordered state” definitely defines the mental, emotional and physical clutter I’m going to be talking about today.

When I think of my clutter from years ago, it was definitely in all 3 realms.  My mind was cluttered with thoughts that I took seriously and held onto as truth, rather than just random...

Generate The Motivation To Get Things Done - Episode 017

Welcome to the seventeenth episode 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.

If you’ve been sidelined for years instead of “in the game” of your life, it’s time to get activated, “off the bench” and onto the playing field

Generating the motivation to get things done is more than coming up with your “good enough reason” to take action.  And it’s more than clearing the resistance.  You need a vision that is going to pull you towards it, rather than you feeling like you are pushing a boulder uphill every time you want to be motivated.

In today's episode, I’m going to be taking a look at WHAT good enough reasons are and what you can start doing to generate the motivation you want.  AND – Knowing is only the first step; the next step is taking action...

Ask Dr B - Episode 016

Welcome to the sixteenth episode 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, as well as the addition of a new show format on Thursdays for you to Ask Dr B.

Your questions matter to me.  In fact, we are definitely a curious bunch and deserve to get our questions answered.  I know that I certainly have had and continue to have lots and lots of questions and I need to get them answered or else I spin or ruminate on them.  Perhaps that's you too.

Ask Dr B used to be a regular feature at meetings I facilitate and I realized that I've missed knowing specific questions that people have and answering them, which is how Ask Dr B came to life as part of this show.

In this episode, I answer the questions you have about issues or challenges you experience as an adult living with ADHD, and offer you hope....

Cut The Confusion About Getting Started & Get More Productive - Episode 015

Welcome to the fifteenth episode 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.

Today’s episode goes deeper into one of the multi-level topics from episode 013 – “Cut the Chaos & Get More Productive.”  I’m focusing on “getting started” first, because it’s a huge problem for many of you.  And even though I’ve heard repeatedly how many of you can do okay once you get started, I know from observations and experience that isn’t necessarily the case.  So, whether you don’t know how or where to start or what to do a step or two after you’ve gotten started, listen up, because you can learn.

It’s like deciding to go to university and study or major in something specific, such as psychology.  What’s great is the path is already laid out...

Cut The Chaos & Get More Productive - Episode 013

Welcome to the thirteenth episode 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.

Today’s episode was inspired by the many conversations I’ve been having lately about just how difficult it is to get started or make a plan or stick to the plan or keep your word to yourself or stop yourself from choosing again or prioritizing or getting yourself to stop or dealing with things that get in the way or dealing with the daily interruptions, and after all of that chaos…actually getting things done that need to be done and that you are capable of doing if it weren’t for everything that just seems to go wrong.

In case you’ve started to “tune out” or feel flooded just hearing me talk about what I learned to do, please don’t let yourself go there; it doesn’t serve you. Sure, it might sound like...

The Elusiveness Of Sleep & Making Peace With Letting Go - Episode 011

Welcome to the eleventh episode 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.

Today’s episode was inspired by the many conversations I’ve been having lately about sleep and the many challenges that so many of you experience when the day should be wrapping up and it’s time to sleep, but you just can’t sleep for any number of reasons.

I first became interested in sleep years ago due to my own sleep challenges, both as a child and on into adulthood. 

Here’s a little aha moment that I’ll share with you in the hopes it helps you.  Today ends at 11:59 pm and tomorrow starts at 12:00 am.  Anything that I don’t finish by 11:59 pm isn’t getting done today; it’s getting done tomorrow and I may as well go to sleep because I am actually stealing time from tomorrow and it will...
