Do you feel like your brain is freaking out? Do you feel ‘under attack’ and anxious? In times of danger (this is one of those times) our ADHD brain is on high alert, trying to peer around every corner and into every shadow, watching for the threat. But there’s no threat you can see. You can’t fight it. You can’t even run from it.
Evolution (a VERY slow process) has prepared your brain to keep you alive. Logic isn’t going to help your brain cope. You can’t say, “Brain, there’s nothing you – or anybody – can do about this right now. So calm down.” Try it. Doesn’t work. So, you can’t change your brain. But what if you could learn to work with it?
In judo, you learn to take down much larger, stronger opponents by using their own size and strength against them. In this Webinar, we’ll explore a sort of “brain judo.” You’ll learn ways to work with, rather than against, your ADHD brain. We can’t fix the uncertainty we’re living with right now. But you can learn to optimize your ability to manage the daily (hourly!) ups and downs so that your brain and body can feel safe, stable, and open to your day as it unfolds.
We’ll talk about self-care. We’ll discuss how to set boundaries (with yourself and others). We’ll go over some emotional regulation techniques to try. You’ll leave with some practical, actionable coping skills to reduce your stress.
