Is there anything that has helped you stay organized? I’m having a really difficult time with organization, and it needs to be fixed if I “want to be an adult.”

      @bathroomroach Ive also found the app and lists to help with my anxiety, too. In Finch, you can delete a task, so I don't have to look at what you couldn't accomplish, if that is what you would like to do. My anxiety gets in the way of letting me get things done often. Cause you've gotta get this thing done in order to even start another thing, so you panic and don't get it done at all, and then make it worse by being upset you're not making progress :/ If you feel the same way, I suggest making a list and taking a break when you feel you need it, but really push yourself to get a single task done at a time at least each day. Even if that task is relaxing 😌

      Yes, not lists not organizers or any of that, just put things where you might or will remember where they arep

      Lists are my thing. I like to use my mirrors, or whiteboards, or notes apps and notebooks, my hands. Everything

        @bathroomroach I also enjoy this self-care app called Finch. They have to set goals for each day at a time, and you get energy in the game as a reward for finishing the tasks you set for yourself. If you can't get them done that day, you don't lose anything, and can save them for another day.

      Im forgetful too so i like leaving things in 1 place to wake up to. Like morning products and clothes are set the night prior so i dont forget anything while i rush in the morning. So put related items together. If ur about to head out, put things next to your bag or wallet youll need to take like keys / pills.

      Im unorganized but routine has helped me. Basically i mean separating tasks and chores into days or slots. So i make my bed in the morning and do laundry on wednesday or sunday for example. If you do that ots easier to start ane finish 1 task at av time rather than have it all pile up and try doing it all in one go. Caffeine helps too but i know its not recc for adhd so id drink it if ur add only

        @lazydaisy exactly! baby steps/ breaking things down is typically very effective for people with add/adhd

      i’m very unorganized but having places for things, and attaching them to strings that are attached to where they need to be, helps me. if i can’t move it far away it’s less likely to get lost and the string reminds me to put it back. another thing that helps me is having someone help me. you can ask for and get help, and still be an adult. labels help me and checklist. part of me hates it but ultimately it’s really helpful to be semi organized
