ADHD TIPS FOR YOUR LIFE – THE 15 RULES OF LIVING WITH ADHD

ADHD Rule 4. Know how your ADHD brain actually works

 

ADHD is most likely caused by your genetics, nutrition, and/or the environment in which you were raised.

It’s been shown that the ADHD brain is biologically different compared to most ‘normal’ brains.

Your ADHD brain isn’t normal. But, it isn’t bad either. It just works differently. My psychologist actually referred to ADHD as a ‘brain-style’, and I really enjoy how she re-framed ADHD in a positive light.

Your ADHD brain works by making you more impulsive, open to taking risks, super-interested in certain subject matters, uninterested in most subject matters, etc.

I’ve always naturally rebelled against authority figures (teachers, work, parents), so my ADHD brain has always been in full force.

The most important thing for you to understand the way your ADHD brain works is that you have to find a common overlap between your interests and your strengths, and then follow that path in life.

Your ADHD brain is ultimately going to make you hate doing stuff that you don’t want to do. 

So, to get the most out of life, you have to find a way to intertwine your strengths with something that interests you and run with it.
