8 Must-Have Skills to Manage ADD

Mar 22, 2008
A lot of adults with ADD perceive themselves constantly weighed down with every day life. They may wake up feeling like they are behind the schedule on all the things they have to do, use up the entire day on high speed so as to get all those things completed, and yet still go to bed nearly all nights feeling like they never got anyplace. Or, they use up the entire day in a fog, continuously conscious of all the things on that to-do list, but never gathering together the enthusiasm to engage in the tasks. This leaves them feeling disorganized, uncreative, discontented, lethargic, at fault ...and the list goes on.

Here are 8 important abilities for handling ADD.

1. Slow Down

ADDers appear to be for all time working on a hyper drive star...mentally, physically, or both. Slowing down when you feel hurried, stressed out, weighed down, etc. is the first and most essential ability for handling ADD.

2. Practice Superb Self-Care

ADDers have a tendency to put themselves last. Why is it so? How will you ever "get it together" if you do not set aside time and energy for yourself?

3. Know Your Own ADD

ADD has an affect on us all in diverse ways. You cannot efficiently handle ADD without being conscious of the particular manner in which it has an effect on you, and the particular manner in which your problems are set off.

4. Keenly Use Your Learning and Processing Methods

Categorizing the natural methods in which you are able to carry on concentrating and processing information and feelings will make your personal and professional lives much simpler.

5. Concentrate on Your Strengths

Everybody has strong points, expertise, aptitudes, and fervors. Increasing the time you use up on these good things will add to both your sense of worth and your contentment.

6. Think Optimistically

Process of pessimistic thinking can be overturned. Pessimistic thinking will hold you back. Optimistic thinking will boost you ahead.

7. Plan the Time to Plan...Everything

Planning does not all the time come effortlessly to ADDers. Developing tools and methods for planning will make more efficient the administration and time managing, but you have to take it one step ahead and plan the time to make use of them.

8. Take Challenges

This does not mean take up speed racing or skydiving! It suggests stepping out of your comfort zone and doing things that may not be comfortable, like requesting that pay rise, taking up that new pastime, or practicing that life long passion. If you do not take the challenge, you will not find the reward.
