ADDA is offering a working group for members who are creating and refining healthy eating, exercising, and sleep habits.
This is the club for you if you are trying to:
- Exercise regularly
- Eat better consistently
- Get a good night’s rest every night
- 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, that’s why this is a club. Starting a healthy habit doesn’t have to be hard.
Healthier habits can reduce ADHD symptoms like inattention, hyperactivity, and distractibility, regular routines help your life feel more manageable.
This series will focus on proven strategies and provide accountability to support participants in achieving their wellness goals.
Diane and Kenny are ADD Coach Academy graduates, they can relate to the pitfalls and hurdles ADHDers experience when it comes to starting and maintaining habits. Annette has years of experience leading support groups for ADHDers. This fun-loving team has the street cred, sense of humor, and tools to make healthy habits easy to achieve.
The Easy Wellness Club paradigm:
- Meetings are fun and energizing
- Making connections that support you
- No one way works for everyone

Kenny Niece – bio
I have a true passion for maximizing health, fitness, fun, and doing what you’re meant to do with life!
My journey of becoming a Holistic Health, ADHD, and Life coach really began over 25 years ago, while earning my Bachelor of Science degree. I learned natural and holistic ways to beat anxiety and panic attacks. In fact, I healed myself from several conditions without the use of medications.
From these early personal achievements, I enrolled at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and graduated in 2007 as a Certified Holistic Health Coach. In continuing my passion for learning, I found the ADD Coach Academy (ADDCA) and completed their advanced coach training in September 2016.
My commitment is helping others learn about natural solutions and exercise methods. I know that together we can increase brain focus and energy through proper nutrition and exercise, while making it simple and fun!
My personal interests are a love of the outdoors shared with my family, traveling and having a good meal. I love to discover new foods that are beneficial for health and self. I enjoy reading and being a student of personal development for the mind, body and spirit. I consider personal development an integral part of healthy living.
My passion for holistic health and learning; through reading current research, and working with other health professionals, is what makes me a true advocate for YOU and YOUR goals and YOUR success.
