ADHD and procrastination go hand in hand! This is because when we are faced with a task to do, there are a lot of executive function skills needed to start, carry out, and complete that task! There is also the overwhelm factor, avoidance due to fear of failure, or even the mere fact that the task at hand is super boring to our brains!!
In this episode, we will talk about "why" we procrastinate and some steps to take to move from procrastination to productivity!
1. Setting visual timers
2. Breaking tasks into bite size pieces
3. Self-advocate for interests, novelty, urgency, and doses of dopamine.
