What works for me as an ADHD Entrepreneur

What works for me as an ADHD Entrepreneur

There are so many questions around here about how to deal with being ADHD without meds etc. So here is what has worked for me. I will link as many resources as I can for you… 

A little background first I was diagnosed with mental retardation and hyperactivity (I am in my late 40’s so ADHD wasn’t a thing yet especially not for girls) at 6 years old.  I didn’t start talking till I was almost 5, didn’t read till I was 10, and didn’t really do school till I was 11 (I had that one amazing teacher that changed the world for me).  Also, Ritalin was a game-changer for me back then… I took that until I was 15 and started to have some health issues. My son is also ADHD and ASD and is now a functioning happy adult (which we were told he would not be).  I went down the RABBIT trail HARD when my son was about 2 since I didn’t want him having the issues I had with medication. 

I am not a Doctor but I have 3  degrees and one of them makes me an amazing researcher. I am a hobby herbalist, nutritionist and as a profession a  Practical How of life & business ADHD coach. 

Here is what works for me and also what works for my son.

1:   Dopamine Hacking is a HUGE deal – see the other article here… 

2: No processed grains, sugars ok well any food.

3: Bullet Proof Coffee:  https://www.fastcompany.com/3034539/what-its-like-to-drink-bulletproof-coffee-every-morning-for-two-weeks

    – set timer go down TikTok and IG stories rabbit trail     for 1/2hour to an hour 

4: 1/2 cup of grapes in the morning with my coffee https://www.techtimes.com/articles/220338/20180213/eating-grapes-can-help-improve-symptoms-of-anxiety-and-depression-says-study.htm

    -Shower

5: 2 eggs (hardboiled is my favorite way) https://www.additudemag.com/slideshows/adhd-protein-breakfast-recipes/    

    -Get to desk and brain dump for the morning 

6: Tumeric, Liquid Magnesium, Liquid Potassium, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B complex, Food Enzymes

    – get to my desk and start my day

    – I have a 15 min break every hour to move and do a     chore or something 

7: Snack 1 cup plain yogurt with berries and 1 TBL spn honey or maple syrup mixed in. 

8: Protein, veggies, and some dark chocolate 

9: Green tea I sip this all day instead of water, honey added for taste or berries crushed 

10: berries, yogurt, and 1/2 cup grapes 

11: Bullet Proof Coffee 

12: Dinner: Protein, salad or fresh veggies, carb – almost always potato with brown rice once in a while 

13: Bedtime snack might be frozen yogurt but I allow myself good quality ice cream some as well. 

14: Bedtime routine no matter what time I go to bed this routine is always followed: 

    -Wash my face and then do a hot washcloth placed over my face for a minute to relax me. 

    -Breathing exercises for 2 minutes 

    -Stretching for 1 minute 

    -Cuddle with puppy and husband for a few 

    -Make sure the book light is charged (plugin if needed) 

    -Make sure relaxing reading is close (no electronics just a good old book) for when I wake up at 2 am and  read for about half-hour and then go back to sleep.
