The Circus in Your Head

31 Day Challenge: Day 21

If you have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, I don’t have to tell you that a lack of order in your home isn’t the only problem. In fact, it might not even be your biggest problem.

The clutter inside your head might be more important.


Am I right?

So how do you clear your head out so that what’s in there makes sense?

Well, I have a number of ideas:

  • Consider ADHD medication; it works for a lot of people.
  • Try a nootropic like Brain Stack
  • Try essential oils like peppermint or blends made for ADHD
  • Make sure you get enough sleep
  • Eat protein at every meal
  • Drink enough water. If you’re thirsty, you are dehydrated.
  • Exercise is one of the most beneficial things you can do to help focus and concentration, so do it regularly.
  • Make a dump list. Write down everything on your mind on a piece of paper and refer to it as needed.
  • Try an herbal tea or remedy to help you relax if anxiety is a problem.
  • Learn to meditate. Giving your brain a rest can be very valuable.
  • Practice yoga. It helps mind, body, and spirit.
  • Examine your life. Are you trying to do too much?
  • Practice excellent self care
  • Give yourself at least 15 minutes of quiet time each day
  • Delegate
  • Learn to give up your perfectionist tendencies
  • Set no more than 3 to dos or tasks to get done in a day

And finally, realize that it’s an ongoing battle, not something you can do once and check off as done.
