Are you an ADHDer who struggles with organization in your home? Today, you're in for a treat as Joy from Joy Loving Home gives us some great tips on getting and staying organized.
Joy Ridenour is a wife, mom of four, and an unorganized professional organizer! - Yes, you read that right! She talks about this during our discussion. Her struggles, coupled with frustration over the organizing industry's need to make moms with ADHD feel inadequate about the difficulties in their homes, led her to share personal stories and ADHD-focused tips.
Joy specializes in productivity and home organization for moms with ADHD, and I have to say, my favorite thing about Joy is that she practices judgment-free organization. As ADHDers, we can often feel a lot of shame around our environments, and one of the things I love about Joy's approach is that she focuses on the mindset of organizing with a heart to find a real, sustainable solution for you.
"… just being kind to yourself, not holding yourself to some standard created by type A people for type A people born organized." - Joy Ridenour
