ADD, ADHD, or Energy Sensitive?
ADD, ADHD, or Energy Sensitive? I’m just so scattered!
Since I was young my teachers knew there was a learning deficit of some type but they never could pinpoint what it was and how to help me. Things are very different today. There is a label or diagnosis for any emotion or obstacle that a person feels or experiences. If I were in school today, I would be diagnosed and labeled with ADHD and Dyslexia. But I’m not in school. I’m a successful businesswoman who is a mother of two and wife to my best friend. So, do I want a label or diagnosis at this point? Hell no! Unless I want to go on a medication to try and help me, there is no reason to have a diagnosis like this made by a doctor. Now, to be honest, I was finally diagnoses by my PCP back during my senior year of high school. At that point, I was 17 and didn’t see why I would need to medicate for the obstacles I had worked through during my primary school years.
Fast forward to my college years when I was in my Masters program and I now wanted to learn the best practices for how to help myself succeed in life, business, and my studies. Over the next few years I studied, was coached, tried prescriptions (many different), and learned what did and didn’t work for me. It is through my own personal experiences that I found what I call “Best Practices” to un-scatter my life. These are the practices that I often share with my clients and friends. The top five pointers I’ve come up with are as follows:
1.) The label or diagnosis doesn’t matter. It is what you do about it that matters most.
2.) Medications do work, for most people. Do you want medication? What will it mean if you do? How can you conquer this without them if that isn’t the path for you?
3.) Typically, there is a label for any mental/intellectual/spiritual/intuitive/emotional obstacle you are facing. Self-empowering practices begin with the full understanding of mind-body-spirit labels to medical diagnosis. Holistic approaches help with this.
4.) How is it that women have been overlooked for this category of suffering for so long? Give this thought for just a moment, you will have your answers (hormones & patriarchal limiting beliefs are two of my answers). If you are a woman, think about your “why” and make a change.
5.) Learn about actionable items that you can implement to improve your day-to-day struggles with that scattered feeling. Also start to plan on how to let go of the idea that you are scattered (The mind is a powerful thing).
I’d love to hear about your story. Please reach out to share. I am holding a workshop at Elemental Wellness and Beauty in Nashua NH on Saturday, September 18th at 10 am.
