    42: the one about doing my best

    42: the one about doing my best

    Moira has an impromptu end of season 1 message for you. Not getting to a softball game on time, so many thoughts, feelings, and unrealistic expectations, and how that connects to ADHD, time management, and podcasting, are all fair game today. Moira needed to take a moment, take stock, have a reality check, get honest, be compassionate, and come up with a plan to continue with her day. That’s not even all of it—it was a busy 9 minutes!

    41: The one about an insider's guide

    41: The one about an insider's guide

    To experience less wear and tear in our lives, creating an insider’s guide helps to manage our limited resources—time, energy, and capacity to have them for what we value. With  ADHD it's also easy to forget hard-won insight and knowledge, a personalized insiders' guide captures that. Moira shares breaking down what needs to be done, and having what needs to be on hand—to really do the things. Not sure if you are ready for that?  She covers what to do if you are dipping your toe into the waters or are on a deep dive like her—when we have ADHD one size does not fit all.

    40: the one about slowing down to speed up

    40: the one about slowing down to speed up

    Getting started, continuing, and finishing are more complex with ADHD. Time and energy are limited supplies too. Trying harder or giving up aren't the only solutions. Slowing down to speed up has short- and long-term benefits. Continuing her progress with one particularly hard task, Moira discusses reducing effort and stress levels by creating ADHD friendly routines we like and work for us. Slowing down (and not refilling it with something else) creates capacity, effort, and time to develop our methods, then we speed up. Not by wiping the slate clean but by drawing from many convenient resources.

    39: the one about hurdles

    39: the one about hurdles

    Expect delays. Time blindness, resistance, procrastination, perfectionism, and indecision are hurdles that can cause slowdowns, stumbles, or create roadblocks.  It’s even harder when we don’t see them. Tired of stumbling between hurdles and roadblocks Moira shares how she’s easing the discomfort just enough to make it easier to lower or clear the hurdles.

    38: the one about being consistently inconsistent

    38: the one about being consistently inconsistent

    Moira’s talking about ways to see and measure growth when it’s hard to notice or even recognize. With ADHD one thing we can consistently count on is inconsistency. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Two steps forward and one step back is still forward. It does take us in the direction we want to go. Moira once again lets us into her life sharing a brief writing activity, her ADHD metaphor—a horse named Mabel and taking an ADHD friendly approach to change (aka an inconsistent one) that surprisingly, made a big difference. It has made it easier to spot unhelpful tendencies, improved her self-awareness, acceptance, and confidence in herself and her growth. All while still consistently finding humor in her consistently inconsistent ADHD.

Amazing!!

I am so grateful for this podcast! I have listened to the first 5 episodes and it is as if she is telling my story. This has helped me so much to feel “seen” and to feel like I’m not alone in this journey I’m on of trying to figure out how to cope with my late diagnosis of combined type ADHD. I tear up during every episode because I feel validated and understood and hopeful that I can learn and develop the skills to manage my ADHD symptoms better. Thank you for sharing your story and giving tips and tricks to help others like me :) You have already changed my life. Thank you!

The one about medication…?

Nothing in this podcast aligns with what is written in the preview.

Love it!!

Moira is an amazing host and talks about so many important and oftentimes not talked about aspects of adhd. Moira’s specific knowledge of adhd and hormones is so helpful. An absolute must listen!
