As ADD Moms, we have a lot to do. There is a house to keep and people to take care of and lots of other things in between.
And when you have ADHD, all of that – or even some of that – can be overwhelming.
It’s no fun to clean the house, especially when it’s a never ending job. It’s hard to keep track of everything, and the clutter seems to multiply by itself.
You know things have to change, but where do you begin?
Easy. You look for the pain.
Think about the thing that is stressing you out the most. The thing that affects your life negatively on a daily basis.
Do you worry about your bank balance and whether or not you paid the electric bill? Then it’s time to put a budget in place and set up a system for keeping track of your money and where it goes.
Do you have a panic attack every afternoon wondering what’s for dinner? Or are you like my mom who used to go to the store every day for dinner inspiration?
Time for some meal planning and once a week shopping.
What about those piles of clutter all over the house? Well, start with the one you trip over the most.
You don’t have to jump into this all at once. In fact, you probably shouldn’t.
Start by finding what’s bugging you the most. Where is your pain?
Now make a plan to attack it and get rid of it. Heal your pain.
You’ll be surprised by how much better you will feel.
