This video will show you what you can do to help your ADHD. This video is a continuation of a video I made on executive function. This video is called What is Executive Function? – How it Relates To ADHD Y
We can divide ADHD management into three areas: time management, organization, and planning.
ADHD sufferers often have difficulty estimating the time it will take to complete a task and then adjusting their schedule accordingly. This can lead to you being late or even unable to complete tasks as you don’t consider how long it should take. ADHD is characterized by a loss of time that has a cumulative effect.
To master time management, you must have access to your timepieces at all times.
Get a watch, and make sure you have enough clocks visible in the areas you spend most of your time.
Next, create your time log with your watch and clocks. This may take several days. Start with the important things like getting dressed, doing chores, cooking dinner, and getting ready to go. You can include work-related activities in this list to help you gain a better understanding about how you spend your time at work.
This is to help you appreciate Time.
Finally, you will receive a daily, weekly, or monthly planner. The daily planner will be used to keep track of your appointments, obligations, and to-do list. The planner will be used twice daily. You’ll use the morning to assess the scope of your day, and the evening to review how it went and what you have planned for tomorrow. You can also reschedule any tasks you missed.
