Co-host Lynne Edris and Heidi Fishbein discuss the topic of “Living on Purpose” with ADHD in their conversation. They delve into several aspects related to ADHD, including tapping into one’s gifts and strengths, the concept of “Masking” among adults with ADHD, using values to guide actions, and overcoming negative thought patterns that hinder personal growth.

  1. Tapping into Gifts and Strengths: Lynne and Heidi emphasize the importance of recognizing and harnessing the unique gifts and strengths that individuals with ADHD possess. They highlight the fact that ADHD can bring about different cognitive abilities, such as creativity, hyperfocus, and out-of-the-box thinking. By identifying and leveraging these strengths, individuals with ADHD can enhance their productivity, fulfillment, and success.
  2. Masking in Adults with ADHD: The conversation addresses the phenomenon of “Masking” that is prevalent among adults with ADHD. Masking refers to the conscious or subconscious effort to hide or suppress ADHD-related challenges, behaviors, or symptoms in order to fit into societal norms. This can lead to difficulties in self-acceptance, increased stress, and a sense of being inauthentic. Lynne and Heidi encourage individuals to embrace their true selves, including their ADHD traits, and seek support in managing their challenges instead of trying to mask or deny them.
  3. Using Values to Guide Actions: Lynne and Heidi discuss the importance of aligning one’s actions with personal values. They suggest that by identifying and understanding core values, individuals can make choices and decisions that are in line with their authentic selves. This approach not only enhances self-awareness but also increases a sense of purpose and fulfillment in daily life.
  4. Overcoming Negative Thought Patterns: The conversation addresses the role of negative thought patterns in holding individuals with ADHD back from reaching their potential. Lynne and Heidi provide strategies for reframing negative thoughts and shifting towards more positive and empowering thinking. They emphasize the significance of self-compassion, self-care, and practicing mindfulness techniques to challenge and rewire unhelpful thinking patterns.

Overall, the conversation between Lynne Edris and Heidi Fishbein focuses on empowering individuals with ADHD to live a purposeful life. By embracing their gifts and strengths, understanding the impact of masking, aligning actions with values, and addressing negative thought patterns, individuals with ADHD can unlock their potential and experience greater fulfillment.
