Info on ADHD

Welcome to the Untapped Brilliance Blog! I am Jacqueline Sinfield the ADHD coach for Adults. On this blog you will find tons of info on ADHD. One the most common sentence I hear from clients is ‘I have so much potential but I just can’t seem to reach it’.  I wrote the ADHD book Untapped Brilliance: How to Reach Your Full Potential as an Adult with ADHD to answer that very question. Untapped Brilliance outlines simple yet highly effective, alternative ways to minimize your unwanted ADHD symptoms so that your wonderful gifts can shine brightly. When that happens, not only are you able to reach your potential, but your life also becomes way less stressful and lots more fun.

The articles here on the blog are all a reflection of my ADHD Coaching philosophy. I am really excited to share with you loads of info on ADHD, and proven strategies that are super effective in minimizing your negative aspects of ADHD so that your magnificent gifts can shine brightly and you too can reach your potential!

ADHD and Housework

When you have ADHD, one of the worst tasks imaginable (right up there with meal planning) is… housework. Not only is it boring and mundane, it provides lots of opportunity for procrastination and distraction. What could be done in two hours ends, up taking all day. It’s like having your own ‘in-house’ time warp. However, even though housework is not pleasant, it does need to be done; both for your health and safety, and your mental and emotional well-being.

So watch this video about how to get your housework done in record breaking time.

There are also some housework checklists to help you be extra speedy!
