Living with ADHD: Instant Help When You Need It
The uncertainties of life can make things worse for patients with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Today, anxiety and fear seem to be the new world order. From health concerns to job losses and the stress of family, ADHD patients bear the biggest brunt. Worst of all, it’s becoming harder to access immediate help and support when needed. So, what are the options?
Add structure to your life
Admittedly, that is easier said than done now that nothing is how it used to be like. There are little consistency and predictability in systems such as work, school, and social life. For someone with ADHD, not having structure, repeatability, and predictability can be a significant problem. Try as much as possible to create structure and a plan for your life. Use a calendar or timetable to stay organized and productive: plan for your meals, exercise routines, workday, and other things that you can control. An experienced therapist can help you formulate a game plan that makes you calmer and focused in a world where you face new challenges daily.
One of the primary symptoms of ADHD includes distractibility and lack of focus. But today, that’s almost everyone. After watching disturbing news, getting fired, or incurring losses in business, no one can blame you for having a “paralyzed brain’. It happens to everyone. Practicing mindfulness (meditation and breathing exercises) teaches your brain to sustain attention in the present moment. It teaches you to look at all things without judgment. And because meditation further limits mental stress and calms the mind’s arousal pathways, it could be a valuable asset for your ADHD symptoms in tough times.
Exercising is another highly recommended approach to living your best life with ADHD. Physical exercise is a stressbuster, and it can lead to better focus and more productivity. It mainly plays a role in the elevation of dopamine, a brain chemical that helps with focus and mood. Existing evidence further suggests that exercise increases working memory for ADHD adults and children. You may find that by working out every day (preferably at the same time), you get better at remembering details, planning, organizing, and managing time.
