Mini-training videos on how to stop overwhelm
I am creating free training this month on solutions for Overwhelm, the primary challenge for ADD / ADHD Adults in getting started.
I had always considered Overwhelm to be a feeling of “too much.” Either the overwhelmed person had too much to do, or the project to be addressed felt too big, too complicated.
But… as I set about to create new training, I realized that “too much” is too simple an explanation.
Overwhelm doesn’t lend itself to one-size-fits-all techniques to break through it. If you tend to get overwhelmed easily, the solutions that will work for you must be based on the cause of your overwhelmed feeling, in that moment.
That means it’s really important to be able to identify exactly what triggers your Overwhelm.>I’ll be addressing this further in my free training series, “How to Stop ADHD Overwhelm.”
How to Stop Overwhelm with ADHD
The first mini-video addresses that age-old question: What comes first, the chicken or the egg?
In this case, the question is:
What comes first: Your feeling of Overwhelm, or another type of emotion, realization or challenge that instantly sets off the Overwhelm.
Don’t miss this quick video, because it could be that your real solution doesn’t lie so much in techniques for overcoming Overwhelm, as in learning how to break through the initial impasse.
There are so many challenges that are common for ADD / ADHD Adults, that tend to stop us. But the good news is — no matter if your Overwhelm is triggered by inability to plan, fear of deadlines, panic at not knowing where to find what you need, unclear direction or shame over not starting sooner — all of these involve skills or habits that can be learned.
And my in-depth live free webinar, “How to Stop ADHD Overwhelm at the Root,” is coming up September 14. You can register for it on the video page.
