ADHD doesn't make it easy to relax.  It can feel almost impossible to do something like yoga or meditate and sleep can feel like an illusive foe to conquer.  In this episode I talk with Sarah Ivanhoe about just these things.  Sara has spent most of her life learning and teaching the practices of yoga, meditation, and sleep.  Listen as we discuss these and the relationship to ADHD.   Sara Ivanhoe: https://www.saraivanhoe.com/aboutVedic Yoga: https://www.vedanet.com/vedic-yoga-the-oldest-form-of-yoga/Yoga Nidra for sleep: https://www.yogajournal.com/meditation/your-brain-on-yoga-nidraSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/ExcuseMyADHD?fan_landing=true)

We all know that ADHD comes with many friends.  We also know that ADHD is easily misdiagnosed as many things and those things are also misdiagnosed as ADHD.  In this episode I am looking more closely at Learning Difficulties and some of the ways the symptoms overlap make it very easy to see how they are so easy to misdiagnose.  Though it is ADHD Awareness month co-morbidities are an important aspect of managing our symptoms.  We have to know and understand the whole picture and work on it all at the same time.https://dyslexiaida.org/attention-deficithyperactivity-disorder-adhd-and-dyslexia/https://dyslexiaida.org/dyslexia-basics/ https://www.additudemag.com/adhd-dyslexia-connection/#:~:text=About%2050%20to%2060%20percent%20of%20people%20with,dyslexia%20is%20not%20reading%20letters%20or%20words%20backwardhttps://www.verywellmind.com/is-adhd-a-learning-disability-4116126 https://totallyadd.com/dyscalculia-and-adhd/https://www.dyscalculia.org/diagnostic-evaluation/ld-checklist-pdfhttps://www.psychologytoday.com/us/conditions/dysgraphia https://www.aphasia.com/aphasia-resource-library/related-conditions/dysphasia/  https://www.understood.org/en/learning-thinking-differences/child-learning-disabilities/auditory-processing-disorder/understanding-auditory-processing-disorderSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/ExcuseMyADHD?fan_landing=true)
ADHD Awareness Month

ADHD Awareness Month

October is a month of many things one being ADHD awareness month.  Now, I know it’s not October quite yet but it will be in a few days and I don’t want to miss it.  If I wait until an October episode then this won’t go out until the middle of the month and that would kind of be a cheat to the importance of ADHD awareness.  This month there are many other things to bring awareness too.  I think we all know it is Breast Cancer awareness month.  But here are a few you may not know.  Some of these seem really fitting with ADHD awareness month some are just funny.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/ExcuseMyADHD?fan_landing=true)

Hi Everyone!  Productivity time.  I know we all hate productivity tips, at least I do.  They are never as easy as people make them seem and I always have to modify them somehow because they never seem to fit with how I do things.  Tell me I am not alone.  This episode is about mind mapping and brain dumping.  I walk you though How I went about doing it and what worked and didn't. The full transcript was too big to post here but it is on the buzzsprout website and will be on my main page www.excusemyadhd.com some time this week.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/ExcuseMyADHD?fan_landing=true)

Today's episode started out as a 5-10 minute check in on everyone that became a 20 minute Sunday drive through the country complete with rambling err rolling hills, speed bumps and babbling brooks, or just babble.  I have gone completely unscripted and un-edited per the advice of a friend....well mostly I broke down and edited a few breaths and pop sounds that I just couldn't help. Also, I don't think anyone says 'so' as much as I do.  Anyway, this episode is my way of saying "Hey how's it going, you doing ok?" and let you know what I have been up to.  Here are some of the links I mentioned in the episode:Heather Vickery: https://vickeryandco.com/ Wall of Awful: https://youtu.be/Uo08uS904RgDIY Mask: https://youtu.be/-t_Gz3lGwF8 Beginner's Hair cutting video's: Men's- https://youtu.be/NhBQnItOhI4Little Girl's- https://youtu.be/W_0s4-Jox8oSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/ExcuseMyADHD?fan_landing=true)

Wow.... hearing you describe everything (you) are!!! I litterly broke down and started sobbing. Your struggles are so familiar to me. Read many books, listened to thousands of podcast, and had a few life coaches.. None of that material offers insight on how ADHD impacts a person's life. Even people with adhd that have podcast and talking specifically about their "struggles ".. its all vague and the "general struggles. I am without words!!!! thank goodness someone is willing to be valunerable and share what it really looks like!!! I can't wait to listen to the other episodes.💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟
