New Resource: 10 Simple Solutions to Adult ADD

We recently reviewed the book 10 Simple Solutions to Adult ADD: How to overcome Chronic Distraction & Accomplish Your Goals on our Podcast. I discussed how I have personally used this book and how I use it in our practice. As a DBT therapist I use the skills in my daily life and I teach them. Yet as I use the skills I find ways to expand the skills and interweave books that help a person become an overall Skillful Person.

The book primarily focus on ADD ( ADHD – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ) we know that ADHD and Anxiety often mimic each other. Therefore, if you have ADHD or Anxiety you can use these tips/tricks to help regulate and get to your goals.

Just a few Common Symptoms of ADHD (from the book):

-Having mood swings
-Abusing Substances
-Chronically Procrastinating
-Having a Quick Temper
-Changing jobs frequently
-Lacking friends
-Having Low Self Esteem
-Impulsively taking risk

Check out the book on Amazon and let us know if this is a good resource for you.
