Are you addicted to your own brand of “chaos”?

If you have untreated ADHD, you might feel like you can only get things done once they become urgent in your mind. You might struggle with decisions and task management over and over again in a day. And you might assume that this is the way everyone lives - from rushed thing to rushed thing. You may be so used to this way of thinking that you don’t know how it could possibly be different. Perhaps most importantly, you may not even be aware of how often you are bringing stress on yourself in order to get what you need done, or to get to the place you are going.

It can be so exhausting to live in a state of chaos.

Many of the clients we work with find this is what drives them to finally get help for ADHD.

That living this way is fine until it’s not fine.

It works only until there are just too many things and you just can’t keep up anymore. Many clients we see aren’t even aware of how much anxiety and weight they are carrying. Only when they are able to take a deep dive into and a hard look inside themselves can they start to imagine another way.Addicted to Chaos Fbook

If you have untreated ADHD, we know how hard it can be to break these types of habits. It can feel almost impossible. And there might be a part of you that is even addicted to the rush, that you are so used to it, it feels like the only way.

The first step is to become aware that you don’t have to live in chaos and that the power is in you to work towards a different way.

It’s not easy, but it’s possible.

At Springboard, we have witnessed it hundreds (likely thousands) of times.

So take a few minutes, today, and ask yourself these questions:
Do I live in chaos? Is it impacting my wellbeing? Do I wish things could be more peaceful?

Be honest and open with yourself. Once you can answer these questions with clarity, you can start your journey for change.
