Hi I have not officially been diagnosed with ADHD but I have asked doctors and been told all of the facts and I’m 99% sure I have inattentive ADHD. And I’m just curious if anyone has any strategies to help me focus on major tasks.

      I find music to be a good way to set my mind to something, something like lofi beats, or just something chill that calms the brain helps with projects.

      I have innatentive adhd too. I have relied heavily on timers on my phone. 35 minutes for a load of washing, 45 for the dryer etc.

      i hope you can get diagnosed and medicated (if you want) because adderall is one of the only things that has helped me. but also DEADLINES are amazing. not just the actual deadline, because you don’t want to procrastinate til then. for me what works is i will make plans at a specific time that i’m really looking forward to, but i wont let myself go until i complete whatever task/assignment/part of a project im working on. make sure your friend knows you cant go until you do that thing so they can help encourage you and keep you accountable!!

        @alannaelwyn accountabilibuddies are so good! they don't need to do anything but it still provides an external motivation which is really helpful cuz god knows i cant self motivate for anything

        @Joy_Boy I’ve never really thought of it as a coping mechanism before but looking back on it I have listen to a ton of music (R&B and Hip Hop) like I got top 99% of Spotify users for amount of time listening to music, but put in perspective of music as a real escape is helpful
