Did you know that people with ADHD tend to be more sensitive and pick up on the moods and emotions of others? It can make you feel exhausted, unsettled and generally throw you off your game.
It can help to know this because then you don’t blame yourself. Whether it is election news, a family function or a stressful work meeting, you might notice afterward that you aren’t as productive or as focused as usual.
Practicing extreme self-care, not watching the news or going for a long walk in the fresh air, are all great ways to shake away the negative vibes and get you back on track.
