    Study Habits For the ADHD Student

    22/09/2020 Duração: 31min

    If you’re a well-practiced student, you probably have your own system and set of practices for doing that job. Taking notes, studying, preparing projects, taking exams ... you know what works for you, right?It turns out, it’s pretty easy to develop a false sense of security in our own systems to the point that they might not actually be helping you do the real work of being a student. This week on the show, we offer the timeline for effective study habits — originated at the University of Arkansas — a simple, straight-forward process to help you learn to study effectively and deliver the results you want.Links & NotesTimeline for Effective Study Habits (PDF)Anki FlashcardsQuizletNotetakingI know, these are both iPad Pro focused, but I encourage you to watch them for process, not technology, if you’re thinking about how to engage in material.

    Reclaiming Email

    01/09/2020 Duração: 01h53s

    You’ve tried email bankruptcy. You know all about filing. But sometimes you have to ask yourself: How did you fall back into email overload... again? First things first: It’s not just you. It’s common to live with some sort of anxiety around email and email overload. Where we’re going to focus today is not on some magical list of things you’re supposedly doing wrong, rather we’re gong to ask some questions about the relationship you want to have with your inbox, about how you might be able to focus on simplicity instead of strict organization, and how a few quick keyboard shortcuts and a learning mindset might make all the difference in your approach to electronic mail.Melissa is our community manager in The ADHD Group.

    Waking up. Going to sleep. Eating. Email. Meetings. Games. Family time. Illness. That list goes on, and on, and on. What do those things have in common? They all involve requiring the brain to transition from one state to another. And the ADHD brain in particular — thanks to the unique powers of attention that come with it — may have a harder time making transitions from one activity to the next. This week on the show, we’re talking all about transitions and how to set yourself up for success by framing your transitions in a new light. Plus, Pete’s back after a longer-than-expected break thanks to his transition around COVID. Links & NotesGroup Coaching for the Fall is now available for registration.

    Environmental stress can make you feel like you're in a never-ending loop. The anxiety that comes with the rapidly changing world around us and the barrage of negative news can amplify negative patterns in our thoughts and behaviors. What we need is a pattern interrupt, a set of tools that can help us to step out of the cycle and regain a sense of calm or peace.Today on the show, Dr. Dodge Rea gives us some tools to interrupt those negative patterns. He introduces a valuable resource in the work of Les Fehmi on alpha and beta brainwaves, and leads us through a meditation on open focus that can serve as your start in a practice to calm your mind and body.Links & NotesThe Open-Focused Brain: Harnessing the Power of Attention to Heal Mind and Body by Les Fehmi and Jim Robbins About Dodge Rea
