I'm Speaking at the ADHD Awareness Expo!

Hello friends,

I'm super excited to announce that I'm going to be speaking at the 12th Annual ADHD Awareness Expo!

October is ADHD Awareness Month and this FREE virtual conference is a great way to find the help and support you need and connect with others. They will be featuring videos from different speakers throughout the month on different topics related to ADHD.

I'm going to speak on Toxic Productivity. How damaging it can be to those with ADHD and what we can do to get things done without sending ourselves down the spiral of self-doubt and self-blame.

Most productivity tips sound like work—which is why our ADHD brains rebel when we try those tips! Our brain doesn't want to do boring, difficult work. It wants to find the captivating, the creative, the challenging...

When we force our brains to do hard, boring work—we end up beating ourselves up and making things worse.

I hope you'll join me and sign up for the expo to see my talk, and many others from great speakers. There's also a free goodie bag and contests with prizes!

Excited to see you participate.

Reminder, it's free to attend!

Stay focused,

🎙️ The Myth of Lazy [Hacking Your ADHD podcast] (17 min) This episode discusses another damaging myth that plagues ADHDers—the myth of lazy. We think lazy is a label for our failures to do things that we want to be doing, but lazy is a choice. When you want to do something and fail, it's not because you are lazy—you want to do the thing!—it's because of something else entirely.

📝 The Antidote to ADHD Fatigue and Exhaustion? Stacking habits (and Spoons) If you aren't familiar with "The Spoon Theory", this is a great starting point. The basic principle is about managing your daily energy (your "spoons") and tracking which activities deplete your spoon supply. Habit stacking is one method to help keep your spoons close.
