A theme of some recent coaching calls has been when it's appropriate to force ourselves into doing things our minds just don't understand. I head back into the BS closet to explore the topic and some ways to make BS seem, well, less BS-y. Warning, I actually say the BS word quite a few times.

Is it possible to be both proud of something and ashamed at the same time? Yes!

This week I explore imposter syndrome, podcast length, and how you may be proud of what you feel is the wrong thing. And here you were thinking I was talking about lions that are ashamed of their families.

Just back from the ADHD Conference and man I'm tired! After the third attempt at recording this episode I finally succeeded. This week I talk about slipping back into our routines after a vacation, and drop the truth bomb that folks with ADHD can be introverts.

This is also the first episode in which I say the ‘F’ word. You might want to skip it if you’re not a fan of “the cussin’”.

This week, two topics crammed into one episode. First off I discuss accidental habits, how habits lead to routines and how they can form without your knowledge. Then a discussion about how difficult it can be to find and use your "voice".

From my "ADHD Awareness Month" video series on Youtube, I bring you one of this week's best recordings. Despite what some may believe, ADHD is quite variable. Different people have different traits, it can change over the course of a lifetime, and its symptoms and severity may vary over days, weeks, and months.

Every October a group of us try to spread awareness of ADHD in the hope more folks will get tested and also understand ADHD doesn't have to be a four letter word.  This week I discuss how ADHD Awareness month came to be, how to know whether you or someone you love has ADHD, and I discuss my foray into the realm of YouTube.  Show notes can be found at https://thisadhdlife.com/podcast/2017/10/6/adhd-awareness-month-2017.

All too often ADHDers look at ourselves as being two different people, one with ADHD and one without. The reality is we always have the ADHD but our symptoms manifest at different levels. Rather than trying to asses our behavior as ADHD or not what if we instead catered to the three productivity gurus we have living inside?

Rather than starting off the New Year with a bunch of goals, what if we instead started off with doing less? In this episode I unpack my rather "unproductive" January, discuss how everyone seems to be freaking out about US politics and begin a discussion about the things we let into our lives.

With the holidays over and our lives slowly returning to normal, many of us try to challenge ourselves to fresh goals. What if instead we gave ourselves a month to unpack our "Boring Stuff Closet" and started to think about goals in a segmented way? This episode I share with you the spark that ultimately became This ADHD Life, why I think resolutions are pointless and something I think everyone should be doing in January.

The 2016 CHADD Conference was great and I'll be sharing some of the topics I learned about in future episodes. This week however I discuss two different approaches to ADHD. While neither is bad I very much prefer a strengths-based approach. I also talk about one of the ways I've tried to fit my thinking into a neurotypical box and how that backfired. This is the first of three episodes for December so I hope you'll ...
