Research indicates that for adults with ADHD, the brain tends to gravitate toward negative information, acting almost like a magnet for unfavorable experiences. Life experiences shape dominant thinking patterns, often fixating on unpleasant memories. This inclination creates an inner GPS that leans heavily toward the negative, flooding the mind with bad news, weaknesses, and failures while overshadowing the positives, strengths, and successes.
This negative focus intensifies anxiety, exacerbating ADHD challenges and fostering a cycle of ruminative thinking that makes it challenging to break free from negative thought loops. Consequently, it hampers the ability to appreciate and embrace the positive aspects of life.
This persistent negative bias creates a neurological imbalance, making it tough to regulate emotions and effectively utilize essential Executive Functions in various life domains such as work, relationships, and decision-making.
The good news is that the brain possesses neuroplasticity—a remarkable capacity to adapt and rewire itself. By consciously directing focus and mental activity, you have the power to reshape the architecture of your brain over time. What you choose to focus on becomes amplified.
