  • [01:59] – The first question comes from Christian.  He has been struggling with sleep and finds himself waking up frustrated.  We try to figure out what could be causing his sleep issues, and we give him some tips.
  • [17:22] – Drew asks if it’s possible to have attention focused in multiple places at once.  Brendan and I explain why it’s not possible to be good at multitasking. Brendan shares his thoughts on this topic.
  • [28:20] – Sarah is looking for advice on how to show her husband that the behaviors of their daughter with ADHD are not a matter of “not caring.”  We talk about helping her husband see things from a different perspective and trying to create better habits for children (and ourselves).
  • [44:22] – Mike joins the call to ask about money.  Finances are something he struggles with but isn’t sure how to unload that responsibility.   Brendan and I talk with him about some solutions.
  • [55:58] – Kenya wonders why just thinking about writing goals down causes anxiety.  Brendan talks about how he plays with language, and sometimes ADHD wins. This question allows me to go on a rant.  
  • [1:04:47] – I share a new strategy to get to bed at a better time.  Brendan talks about a new snack that helps him avoid unhealthy snacks.

  1. Brendan, genius idea with the chewing orange slices! Sounds healthier than gummy candy for the jaw 🙂 I can definitely relate to the chewing satisfaction.
