Help for Women with ADHD

by Joan Wilder


Between four and eight percent of American adults have been diagnosed with ADHD – or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Common symptoms include feeling constantly overwhelmed, impulsive, foggy-headed, or disorganized.

Anyone can experience attention deficit issues. Stressors such as post-partum hormones, PMS, menopause, or dietary changes, can temporarily cause similar obstacles in the way of productivity, even for people with no prior formal diagnosis. Additionally, in a world where more of our attention is being captivated by social media, mitigating attention deficit symptoms can be a powerful mindfulness tool for anyone.

Joan Wilder, a freelance journalist and writer, was diagnosed with ADHD as a child. From personal experience, she provides a series of tried and true tools, strategies, and supportive wisdom nuggets that have helped her tackle some of the most prevalent ADHD and attention deficit challenges.
