    Dear Neurotypical Friends and Family…

    Dear Neurotypical Friends and Family…

    This one’s for all the neurotypical friends and family who have a loved one living with ADHD. There are SO many misconceptions about this diagnosis, and it can be super challenging for us to communicate our experiences to you effectively.

    Societal shame and childhood upbringings have played a huge role in diminishing the voice of ADHDers. But there are so many things we’d like you, our friends and family, to know about us! Thanks to the input of several friends in the community, I’m sharing 3 things we wish you knew about ADHD and 3 things we’d like to ask from you.

    Without giving away too much, it’s crucial for you to start by understanding how hard it is for us to share our struggles and ask for help. THANK YOU for taking the time to listen to this episode and for being our support system!

    Another helpful thing you can do for a loved one living with ADHD is encourage them to get support. My group coaching program FOCUSED offers a supportive community and the tools needed to thrive with ADHD. >>FOCUSED

    The Scandalous Concept of “Archive-All”

    The Scandalous Concept of “Archive-All”

    If you’re guilty of adding too many tasks to your to-do list and then feeling guilty for not completing them, this message is for you! To-do lists are meant to be useful for prioritization and recollecting what needs to get done — but it’s easy to lose ourselves in the list itself and struggle to cross anything off at all, leading to procrastination, dread, and shame.

    It may sound scandalous, but you should consider the email concept of “archive all” to cleanse the clutter in your brain and let yourself off the hook! To those of us living with ADHD, this may sound terrifying… impossible even. But the only way to make progress is by taking one step at a time, tackling items one by one.In this episode, I’m divulging why I relish archiving ALL THE THINGS that take up too much brain space and how it helps me be *more* productive in the long run.

    It’s time to let go of the unnecessary weight you’ve been carrying for far too long. Archive it all — with no strings attached!

    Want to start tackling your to-do list? Check out my coaching program for adults with ADHD >>FOCUSED.

    The ADHDers Guide to Achievable Goals with Michelle Carter

    The ADHDers Guide to Achievable Goals with Michelle Carter

    Big, impossible goals are sexy. That’s what the world wants us to think. We have to do all of the things and be great at each one. But unrealistic goals are a challenge for adults with ADHD, and they set us up for failure.

    Michelle Carter is an American shot putter and three-time Olympic athlete who took home a gold medal in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. But more importantly, she’s an adult with ADHD who’s achieved some pretty amazing things by giving herself the space to choose what’s a priority to her and working on her goals one step at a time.

    Michelle shares what she learned about ADHD that’s helped her identify and achieve her goals in a way that works for her — plus, we discuss the emotional moment she realized she’d won gold at the Olympics.
    Learn more about Michelle here and be sure to follow her on Instagram.

Saved

I think this podcast saved me. Not from dying physically, but from dying emotionally. This has made me feel so validated and given me tools to personal empowerment. I’m so grateful.

I’m Learning About Myself

I really enjoy Kristen’s honesty and vulnerability she shares with listeners through these podcasts. Especially this relationship series. My own impulsive responses to say YES way too often in my life. I’ve never been a good decision maker and I am learning that is such a part of who I am as an adult with ADHD. Thanks for this podcast that is so valuable

Teacher who is learning so much!

I have had children with ADHD in my elementary classes for 25 years and it is so interesting to hear from someone who has actually experienced it and can put into words what it is like. Thank you for helping me to understand better!
