The Importance of Self-Care & ADHD

Have you ever noticed that when you are taking care of yourself, your ADHD symptoms seem to lessen? You can focus better, you have more energy, and you get more done. 

This is not a coincidence. There is a definite connection between self-care and managing your ADHD. Which is exactly why I spent the last several weeks focusing on this link in my podcast and blog.

We covered a lot of different topics around exercise, medication, mindfulness, and more. And for the first time ever on Taking Control: The ADHD Podcast, we had the privilege of interviewing a few guests to share with us their expertise. 

 I wanted to share with you a few of the most popular posts from this series in case you missed it:

There is a great deal of information here and I hope you find a few things that resonate with you that you can start to work on immediately. I just want to remind you to start small. Trying to do everything at once cannot only be overwhelming, but self-sabotaging.  The biggest success comes when you start small with realistic goals that you can do on a daily basis.
