Changing the Face of ADHD … One Nutrient at a Time

Presenter: Karen Ryan, NNCP, RHN of vancouverADHD

ADHD is a diverse syndrome that deserves a multi-pronged approach. While medication can play an integral role, so can nutrition and proper supplementation.  In this session, Karen Ryan, author and seasoned clinical and holistic nutritionist, delves into the correlation between nutrition and ADHD – simply what works and what doesn’t work.

Karen will explain the importance of a clean diet for both ADHD and mental wellness, key factors to incorporate (or avoid) into the diet, which vitamins and minerals are an absolute must and then, finally, the best ADHD diet protocols moving forward. Getting a handle on ADHD symptoms is absolutely achievable with a few nutritional tweaks and Karen shows how simple it can be.

ADHD and Technology: Finding Balance

Presenter: Dr. David Sitt

In an age where technology is fused into our lives, through cell phone dependency, constant social media engagement and screen time warnings for children, we can no longer assume all is well. The latest research shows that our attention span is shrinking; our ability to multi-task is hindered by the presence of our cell phones, tablets, and computers; and children’s brains are undergoing significant physiological shifts due to overexposure and dependence on phones/tablets. For children and adults with ADHD, these challenges are often magnified.

With taxed executive functions, splintered attention spans, propensity towards impulsivity and stimulus seeking, and other neurocognitive challenges, the ADHD brain requires mindful effort to live in balance with technology.

Drawing upon over a decade of clinical experience with ADHD and technology addiction, Dr. David Sitt will address such growing concerns and provide insights on how to live in harmony with technology. In this engaging webinar, methods for developing healthy boundaries will be presented, along with skills for overcoming common pitfalls that technology presents to those with ADHD. Techniques on how to maximize technology and use it for the betterment of your ADHD will also be discussed at length. Dr. Sitt will speak to the power of mindfulness and value of meditation as overall tools for living with ADHD, and their role in living in balance with technology.

ADHD Working Memory and Overcoming Project Procrastination

Presenter: Jeff Copper, MBA, PCC, PCAC

Got ADHD? If so, your working memory is taxed. Working memory is about loading thoughts, ideas, and concepts into your mind, holding them without forgetting them, and then running trial-and-error scenarios until they are organized and make sense.  It’s an effort to engage the executive functioning brain. Each time you engage your executive functioning brain, it’s like booting up your computer. It takes time to load the operating system, applications, and tools needed to do the work.

When a computer loses power, the screen goes blank. The power switch must be pushed for the computer to be rebooted before work can continue. Often it feels like starting over. Same goes for working memory. If you have ADHD and are effortfully working on a project but you must leave it or you get distracted, it’s like the computer in your mind loses power and you have to reboot your brain. This is effortful, time consuming, and feels like having to start over, and over, and over, which is unproductive. Exhausted, you may often escape to procrastination to recharge yourself.

The trick to overcoming project procrastination is to learn how to use the hibernate button of your brain instead of constantly rebooting. ADHD and attention coach Jeff Copper will share insights, concepts, and strategies to help you overcome project procrastination. How? By pushing the hibernate button in your brain so you don’t have to spend so much time starting over by rebooting your brain.

Salvage Your Day from TO-Do List Sabotage! - When Losing the Dog is Not Part of Your Plan.

Presenter: Nikki Kinzer, PCC & Pete Wright

You know the feeling. It seems like you were behind when you took your first step out of bed this morning. “That’s OK,” you said to yourself, “at least I have a good plan. As long as I just stick to that…”

And then, things change. Traffic is terrible. It snows unexpectedly and you have to pick up the kids from school. And your dog bolts on you. You’re feeling the pressure of all the people you’d committed to, the schedules you’re going to have to break. Your plan is dust.

In this conversation with podcasters and coach Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright, you’ll learn how to reclaim your time and attention when it feels like the world is out to get you. You’ll learn how to find perspective, even when your senses are muddied with ADHD overwhelm. And you’ll see how to use the tools in the mindfulness toolkit to re-center and grant yourself grace and peace. And you’ll do it all with a sense of humor.
