How to Conquer Daily Life (with Executive Dysfunction & ADHD)

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

The MOST widespread issue amongst ADHDers is a chronic struggle with daily functioning.


We often feel ashamed by our struggles with daily tasks like...

  • Getting started

  • Transitioning between work mode & relaxing

  • Managing overwhelm

  • Fueling our bodies

This is because the core of ADHD is executive dysfunction which affects...

  • Impulsivity regulation

  • Starting tasks

  • Memory

  • Regulating alertness & sustaining effort

  • Emotional Regulation

  • Maintaining focus & shifting attention

"ADULTING" Parents and teachers often act as our executive functions throughout childhood. So the struggle of "Adulting" can leave us feeling guilty after growing up as a smart or gifted child! It can be freeing to realize that you're NOT lazy, broken, or crazy. We now need to discover tools that help us to manage the challenges caused by our executive dysfunctions!


If you struggle with daily functioning as an adult with ADHD, consider the following:

  • LEARN & RESPECT YOUR LIMITS

    • Avoid over-scheduling yourself

    • It's okay to say "No" especially when your plate is full

    • DON'T blame yourself for needing more time

    • Allow yourself days to be "unproductive"


  • Try creating a REALISTIC ROUTINE and DON'T beat yourself up if you slip. Days are less overwhelming when you spend less time trying to figure out what you should be doing next.


  • Don't underestimate the POWER OF COMMUNITY and body doubling when it comes to support and finding creative solutions for your neurodivergent daily struggles! Who's better to help you with daily functioning than people with similar brains and their own toolboxes to manage them?
