The Overwhelmed Brain: ADHD & Executive Functions in Adults

Have you ever wondered why you get overwhelmed so quickly?

Or you feel like you're drowning from all the things you need to do and you can't come up for air even if you like to?

As adults we get so busy with work, parenting, relationships, and adulting in general, we often neglect the parts of ourselves that keep us stuck.

Many adults struggle with executive functioning skills, like flexibility, task initiation, memory, time management, organization, problem solving, and emotional regulation. We often see ADHD and executive functioning challenges as a "kid thing" when these challenges don't actually go away when you become an official adult.

Here's a quick scenario:

You are busy washing the dishes when your child comes up and asks you to help her with her homework. So you leave the dishes to sit down with her while she does her homework. On the way back to the kitchen, you saw some toys left on the floor so you pick them up and place them in the toy bin. Then you remembered to add some items to your shopping list. Crap! You totally forgot about the dishes waiting in the sink.

Sound familiar?

What are you trying to do about it?

Sometimes, we're too focused on helping our children learn about time management, self-control, decision-making, flexibility, planning, and so much more, we don't realize that we don't have the skills either.

So if you think about it...

How can we teach them these skills when we haven't mastered the skills?
