1 Take Care ADHD in adults can make some adults become hyper-focused on tasks they really enjoy doing, and therefore forget to eat, rest and even go to the bathroom! One way to manage ADHD in adults is to set regular times of the day to carry out a quick check on yourself. Check if you’re hungry or thirsty and take regular toilet breaks. It can help to be prepared for this by having drinks and snacks to hand. Another is to try and incorporate some exercise into your day. Which leads pretty well to…
2 Making Sure You Sleep Well Poor sleeping habits can really exacerbate the symptoms of ADHD in adults. Being overtired can affect your attention span and makes some cognitive tasks more demanding to carry out. Making sure you have had some exercise during the day and setting a regular bedtime will help you stick to a more regular sleeping pattern.
3 Declutter ADHD in adults can make some adults untidy. Clutter, around adults with ADHD, can be overwhelming and cause feelings of anxiety, so organising your space can really help to reduce these feelings. Start with one room and remove anything unnecessary. It can be quite liberating to surround yourself only with the things you need. This will also reduces the anxieties associated with searching for things. Conversely, organising itself, can be stressful for adults with ADHD, which is why devising a schedule for clearing, can remove the despair of organising and help with managing your ADHD treatment.
4 Keep A Diary Managing ADHD in adults, can be helped by keeping a diary. This way, you can create a schedule to help organise your days, but also have a place to store notes and ideas that crop up throughout the day. As soon as you book an appointment or are informed about a meeting, put it in your diary immediately. Another technique which can be helpful for implementing ADHD treatment, can be to use post-it notes. These can be helpful to write messages down on, but always transfer these into your diary at the end of the day.
5 Use Pill Boxes ADHD in adults can contribute to some people forgetting to take their medication, or resulting in them taking it twice! Buying pill containers with the days of the week labelled on them will help you to keep organised with medication. If you buy several and fill them at the same time, it can also alert you as to when you are running low, so you will remember to book an appointment to get a new supply.
6 Set Alarms Set alarms to help keep you focused and on track – this will help with your ADHD treatment.
7 Keep A Clock In The Shower Or again, set an alarm. With ADHD in adults, getting a visual reminder of the time helps avoid taking too long or becoming caught up in distractions.
8 Know Yourself Know yourself and identify where your vulnerabilities lie. Replace drugs, alcohol and other addictions with things that have a positive impact on your life, such as exercise, music or visiting places of interest.
9 Establish Your Limits With ADHD in adults, it can result in a tendency to take on too much because of a desire to please others. ADHD treatment for ADHD in adults involves being realistic about what you can manage. It’s still entirely possible to do nice things for and with people, as long as you allocate time realistically.
10 Seek Support for ADHD In Adults Whatever you are struggling with, don’t feel alone. Seek support from the smallest of tasks such as maintaining the housework to the bigger ones like locating a support group locally or finding adult ADHD treatment.
