As a newlywed, I made macaroni and cheese from scratch. I didn’t carefully read the recipe and ended up with mounds of macaroni. We called the neighbors, held a macaroni-and-cheese party and shared a good laugh. It wasn’t a laughing matter, however, when I piled mail and magazines in a haphazard way hiding important receipts and invoices.
Rushed. Distracted. Stressed.
As I matured, I began to understand the serious impacts of distraction, disorganization, and inattention to detail. I began to understand that some of my bad habits—over scheduling and rushing—were ADHD-like behaviors. Too often, I was inconsiderate to others and not as productive as I’d hoped. I was frustrated because I disappointed others and myself.
As an educational psychologist, I applied cognitive-behavioral strategies and changed my ADHD tendencies.
Practical, step-by-step strategies provided me specific ways to manage my responsibilities while effectively managing my time with family, career, and social life. These methods became a lifeline, particularly in times of great trouble. This was especially true after family tragedy struck and I needed every ounce of my mental and emotional resources to survive.
