The beginning of a new calendar year is a time when people often make New Year’s resolutions. Most often our resolutions involve something we’d like to be doing differently. We may resolve to eat better, exercise more, or do more volunteer work. Any such actions can have a significant positive impact on our lives, if we can stick with them long enough.
I was interviewed for an article for AARP, and it has just come out. Please feel free to share it, since it has a lot of helpful information about ADHD in adults. Happy Holidays!
Most of us with ADHD have been told quite often that we are doing things the wrong way. We try hard to change, but when we fail to change, our frustration and shame can lead to a nagging sense of low self-esteem. How do we change something so basic as our inner sense of our own worth?

Since this is Thanksgiving week, you may not be surprised that I would like to share something about gratitude. It is certainly wonderful that we have a day in the US that is set aside as a holiday specifically related to giving thanks. For many of us, this special day and even the anticipation of this day remind us to think about things and people about which we are grateful.
The fall and winter holidays are approaching! This year will be like no other as we try to create safe ways to celebrate and invent new ways to feel connected.
We made it through the U.S, election — well, sort of. We are now into a time of transition – and that transition may be a little rough.
None of us can help being acutely aware of the very intense US national and local election process. Most of us, of whatever political persuasion, are convinced that the results of the 2020 election are likely to significantly impact our future.
On November 5, 2020, at 1pm EST, Dr. Kathleen Nadeau, one of our leading experts on ADHD in older adults, will be giving a free webinar through ADDitude magazine.
Consciously mourning the loss of the “old normal” can at least bring us a gift of increased awareness of what we value and long for. Many of us are discovering that close connection with friends and family is a quality we are eager to keep in our lives.
