Top Coping Strategies For Teenagers and Adults With ADHD


If you're a teenager or adult with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the following tips may help you cope with your symptoms from day to day.

If you can't remember an instruction, ask your teacher or boss to repeat it. Don't just guess.

Break big jobs into smaller stages, and reward yourself as you finish each one.

Make a list of what you need to do each day. Then put these tasks in the order you intend to do them. Cross each thing off the list as soon as you've done it.

Work in a quiet area.

Do one thing at a time.

Take regular short breaks.

Carry a notebook and write down things you need to remember.

Use Post-it notes to remind yourself of things you need to do. Put them where you will notice them, such as on your fridge or car dashboard.

Store similar things together. CDs should be in one place, videos in another. Bills should be separate from personal letters.

Create a routine. Get up and go to bed at the same times each day.

Exercise, eat a balanced diet and try to get enough sleep.
