Raise your hand if you struggle to go to bed on time. “On time” = when you want to go to bed, or when you promise yourself (and others) that you’re going to go to bed. This is a constant struggle for many of my clients, and in this episode I give you 10 tips to getting to bed ON TIME.

Adult ADHD and Perfectionism

Adult ADHD + Procrastivity
39:16

Procrastivity is a term that Russell Ramsay coined, and I love it. Ramsay is the author of the new book, Rethinking Adult ADHD, and I’m telling you: HE GET US. 100%.

On today’s episode, I dive into a portion of Ramsay's book in which he talks about procrastinating with activity that SEEMS productive, but isn’t. Procrastination + non-essential activity = procrastivity. This is a game changer!

Get Out of the Funk: Generating Positive Emotion
23:22

No one ever told me that I get to choose how I feel about something. I always thought my emotions happened to me. Today we chat about interrupting our go-to spirals and generating more useful emotions.

 

Why do emotions matter? Because each emotion leads to action (or inaction). If you’re procrastinating, it’s because of an emotion. If you’re avoiding, it’s because of an emotion. If you’re over-eating, it’s because of an emotion. If you’re working hard, it’s because of an emotion.

 

EMOTIONS ARE EVERYTHING.

Also - we chat about the 3 types of emotions. Which ones are useful and which are indulgent.

Owning Your Diagnosis
27:00

Your life won't improve until you accept and own your diagnosis. That's when the party really starts.  It’s taken me several years to really change my thinking about ADHD. Once I changed my thinking, I could change my actions and improve my life, and you can, too. That’s actually psychology 101 – your thoughts determine your feelings. Your feelings determine your actions your actions determine your results. So if you want different results, it’s time to think different thoughts.
