ADDA is offering a working group for ADDA+ members who are creating and refining healthy eating, exercising, and sleep habits.
This is the club for you if you are building habits like:
- Regular Exercise
- Eat better consistently
- Get a good night’s rest
- Want to share the journey with friends who are cheering you on
Eating well + getting plenty of sleep + exercising regularly = Better ability to focus
We know the best motivator for ADHDers is strong interest, aka fun. Starting a healthy habit doesn’t have to be hard.
Healthier habits can reduce ADHD symptoms like inattention, hyperactivity, and distractibility. Having regular routines helps you feel like life is more manageable.
The group will focus on proven strategies and provide support to achieve our wellness goals.
We can relate to the pitfalls and hurdles ADHDers experience when it comes to starting and maintaining habits. We are right there with you.
- Meetings are energizing and fun
- Making connections that support you
- No one way works for everyone
Join us on Monday evenings for ADDA’s Healthy Habits and the ADHD Brain Group – building wellness one step at a time.

My name is Annette Tabor. After graduating from Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I moved to Florida with my husband. There we raised two daughters and we are now the proud grandparents of 3 grandchildren with one more on the way! Two years ago, I retired after teaching, a 40 year career. Now I am tutoring part time and enjoying my grandchildren the rest of the time!
After I was diagnosed with ADHD late in life, I became a Volunteer Coordinator for CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). I led a local group for over 20 years which offered support, education and advocacy for parents and ADHD adults. Now I am looking forward to Volunteering for ADDA. As an Adult with ADHD and an adult with Sleep Apnea I am relish the opportunity to sharing my knowledge of how Sleep issues correlate to ADHD.
