This week's question comes from a listener: how do you navigate the procrastination-anxiety loop that emerges when hyperfocus and disinterest collide head on? This week on the show, Nikki shares background on the conditions that allow this sort of hyperfocus and procrastination to occur, and tools to shape a response before it happens again.
Today we’re talking about what goes into hyperfocus with an eye on creating a more productive, targeted experience for ADHD that the experts have dubbed flow. Is it possible to build a model of understanding our hyperfocus states such that we can train our brains to get better at it? Join us and share your experience, too!
Yes, you know what ADHD does to your attention. But did you know that part of your distractibility might just be because you're ... human?
We’re wrapping up ADHD Awareness Month with a Digital episode this week, taking a look at one of our long-standing requests: what do you need to look for to silence the notifications on your devices and help you take control of the things that have access to your attention.
But once you’ve silenced the notifications, what are you going to do with all that reclaimed headspace? Put it to good use with some introspective journaling! We talk about Pete’s favorite tools and prompts for journaling, and invite you to check out our friend Michelle Chalfant’s 30-Day Journaling Challenge for the month of November!

Even if you know exactly what you need to do, and when you need to do it, getting it done can be a minefield of buzzes, bells, and rings — distractions that keep us from truly achieving our goals. This week on the show, Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright take on distractions, and share tips and tools for making sure you own every single minute of your productivity!
