Love your support and insight.
I think we always need reminding to stay heading in the right direction.
Thankfully there are heaps of timer apps to choose from, we need to keep our brains stimulated!
15 minutes is a great block because you know it won’t be long stuck doing boring stuff.
Our brains need stimulating all the time.
Never use ADHD as an excuse for your shortcomings. You actually have the power to change in yourself.
ADHD is a gift of power…believe you have the power to put your phone in “the black box” when the alarm goes off. Believe you are powerful enough to walk away from their for 15 minutes.
do it once…it gets easier. And remember…you will go back to what you were like…because that’s what humans are like. Just make use of your awesome research skills and find another timer app…just one remember! You can try another one next time…
If you fluff up one day…try again tomorrow…and force yourself to bed early and up early.
