Free Webinar Replay: Anxious? Overwhelmed? Worried? Empowering Strategies for Nurturing Positivity During the COVID Crisis

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn empowering strategies for nurturing positivity during the COVID crisis, with Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D.

It’s everywhere. The pandemic is seeping into every nook and cranny of our ADHD lives, disrupting our carefully crafted routines. So how are you holding up? In an ongoing ADDitude survey about ADHD and the coronavirus, many adults with ADHD are feeling anxiety and overwhelm like they never have before. They are too unfocused to complete their own work at home, too challenged and tired to help their kids with schoolwork while trying to juggle the basics of life, and too emotionally overwrought to stick to healthy routines.

The good news is we can keep our brains awake and alive with positivity, not gloom and doom. We can maintain our routines or create new ones that work for now. We can take the long view and know that, eventually, this will end. Hope, gratitude, and the best qualities of our ADHD will get us through.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why people with ADHD are particularly adept at dealing with crises, like the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Why people with ADHD are at particular risk during the pandemic
  • How to regulate out-of-control emotions — anger, sadness, fear
  • How to short-circuit the default mode network that causes ADHD brains to ruminate about an uncertain future
  • How families can seek out the positives and minimize the negatives of these challenging times
  • Ways to avoid loneliness and encourage social interaction
  • Hallowell’s personal strategies for managing fears about this crisis
