      @KratomEater I looked it up. Very interesting, I think I will try it myself 😊

      Will you give an example of what areas you are struggling with? I struggle with staying on task, starting something that is hard, or I don't want to do, misplacing things, organization, planning, remembering things needed (ie: on the way to the store I think "I need milk" but forget to get it while I'm there, or I put things that need to go upstairs next to the stairs but forget to take them with me when I go upstairs later), and trouble putting whats in my head into words. (It took me almost 15 minutes to write this because of that. LOL) I use some DBT and meditation methods to help.

          @KratomEater 😄 sometimes it just takes another's perspective to have that "ah ha!" moment and say "yep, that's it!". Or they are just able to put into words what you can't.

One way to get around executive dysfunction is to go into "ghost mode" where you push yourself to do something until you get the motor going. Another suggestion is to play a video to distract or motivate yourself while doing the task at hand. Breaking tasks down into smaller steps and following a routine can also help. Some people find success with making lists of things they need and want to get done, then focusing on completing half the list. Medications may also be helpful for some individuals.
