Many with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have a love/hate relationship with habits and routines. On one hand these habits and routines provide structure, consistency, stability, and conformity in a sometimes chaotic life; on the other hand, they can be restrictive, confining, and boring. One thing is for sure. The self-help section of the book store, as well as schools, business, and society, all emphasize the establishment of and need for consistency, routines, and the formation of habits. Easy enough for those with ADHD; right? Wrong! If it were easy for those with ADHD to form or change habits, they would have done it by now.
In this presentation we will take an in-depth look at ADHD, its nature, and the forming and changing of habits. We will examine why it can be more difficult for those with ADHD to change habits, why they procrastinate around forming habits, and why they might not be able to adopt a new organizational structure that promises to help them become better organized and improve efficiency.
With new awareness of the challenges inherent in forming and changing habits for those with ADHD, we discuss key things to consider when attempting to adopt or change a habit. We look at key environmental factors that can improve the chances of success, as well as a reasonable expectation of what can be done in this area.
