:rainbow-flag:Free Neurodivergent Pride Month Panel is this Thursday, June 13, at 1:30 PM PT / 4:30 PM ET – Register at www.adhdrewired.com/pride2024

This week we focused on the importance of planning for the future and prioritizing meaningful activities, with what Eric likes to think of as “Big Heart Week.” The coaches emphasized the need to direct energy towards activities that provide a sense of purpose and emotional fulfillment and shared their personal experiences with setting and achieving goals. The discussion also revolved around creating and reviewing bucket lists as a way to connect with one’s inner desires and plan for meaningful experiences.

Prioritizing Meaningful Activities

In the latest episode of the Adhd Rewired podcast, Eric, Coach Kristen, and Coach Brian discussed the importance of planning for the future and prioritizing meaningful activities. The theme of the week was “Big Heart Week,” focusing on issues that might be difficult to confront. Brian emphasized the significance of directing energy towards activities that provide a sense of purpose and emotional fulfillment rather than just productivity. Eric concurred, stressing the need to recognize the unpredictability of life and carve out time for activities that matter. The coaches shared their experiences of helping clients approach these topics and encouraged listeners to reflect on their own priorities.

Discussing Personal Bucket Lists and Goals

Eric encouraged members to plan for their long-term goals and dreams, and initiated a discussion about personal bucket lists. Coach shared that she has noticed a pattern among members where practical considerations, such as creating a will or planning for children, often come up when making bucket lists. This realization has led to more intentional goal-setting and planning. The group also recognized the value of sharing and knowing each other’s dreams and aspirations.

Shared Projects, Accomplishments, and Motivation

An anecdote was shared about a person’s enthusiasm and eagerness to move forward with a shared project. Eric then discussed the joy he found in seeing group members sharing their accomplished bucket list items, finding it both entertaining and inspiring. Brian, who participated in an annual bikeathon fundraiser for the Aids Life Cycle, shared his personal experience of setting a goal to participate in the event, initially hesitant due to self-doubt, but eventually realizing his capability to achieve it. His accomplishment provided him a sense of enrichment and motivation in all areas of his life.

Creating and Celebrating Bucket-List Experiences

Eric emphasized the importance of creating and reviewing a bucket list as a way to connect with one’s inner desires and plan for meaningful experiences. He suggested that people should be intentional about their bucket lists, allowing themselves to enjoy the anticipation of upcoming experiences and celebrating achievements along the way. Coach Kristin added that unexpected experiences also qualify as bucket-list items and should be recognized and celebrated. The team also shared personal bucket-list items, including Eric’s story of a delightful experience at a clothing-optional campsite.
