Nutrition, Exercise, and How to Find Your Keys with Ian Ryan | ADHD reWired

136: Nutrition, Exercise, and How to Find Your Keys

Ian Ryan is the founder of and the host of the Fearless and Healthy Podcast, a show on health, self-help, and education. With nine years of experience as a health coach, he believes in a holistic approach to wellness.  He puts a large emphasis on mastering mindsets.

In order to reach our full potential, the first thing we must focus on is our health and self-care. If we are not feeling well or healthy, nothing else will fall into place.  Ian believes in eating healthy and he shares what that means.  This give us more energy and it fuels our bodies to make us more productive. Ian shares a lot of his nutrition expertise throughout this discussion.

Ian struggles with organization and clutter.  In the ADHD reWired Hot Seat portion of this episode, we use some mind-mapping and other strategies to help him get more organized.  I share with Ian some ways for him to remember, implement, and correct.
