ADHD, Resolutions and Intentions - Increase Your Chance for Success

What types of intentions can you set around managing your ADHD? Try just setting one intention, then talk to yourself about it.

How are resolutions different from intentions?  Mindfulness and self-talk are strategies that can increase your chance of success to do something differently. 

Ask yourself:  What do I want to do?  How important is it to me?  When will I do what I intend to do?  Keep it simple and realistic.  

For example, declare your intention to yourself.  If I want to make sure that I eat healthy food instead of junkfood, I will start with setting my intention.  I will close my eyes and state to myself  “I intend to plan our dinners for the next week by 2pm today.”

As I plan my day, this intention will be top of mind and I’ll increase my chances of meeting my intention.
