THE 5 FACTOR FOCUS METHOD
When it comes to ADHD and executive functioning, exercise is shown to make huge improvements. Choosing the type of exercise for our personality can be the first hurdle someone with ADHD faces. We also need to stick to regular exercise in order for it to help improve brain function. In the 5 Factor Focus Method, we learn the best exercise for our specific brain and personality type.
We also learn simple, but specialized, exercises to balance the brain.
Sleep plays a huge factor in how well your brain and body work. Restful, restorative sleep is a powerful tool for regulating mood and maintaining attention throughout the day. We all know how foggy we can be if we aren't getting enough sleep. If you are anything like me, you need all the extra brain power you can get! In the 5 Factor Focus Method we will learn simple tips and tricks to getting that good night sleep.
Our nervous system controls and coordinates everything in our body. Stress can highly affect how our nervous system is working (even in the neurotypical brain). Physical, chemical and emotional stress all can cause interference in our nervous system which makes our brain and body not function at its best.
ADHD can cause us to experience life more intensely, more passionately than neurotypicals. We have a low threshold for outside sensory experience because the day-to-day experience of our five senses and our thoughts are always on high volume. The ADHD nervous system is overwhelmed by life experiences because its intensity is so high. In the 5 Five Factor Method, we learn how to maximize our nervous system function.
Do you feel overwhelmed in stores, at the office, or at parties? Is it impossible for you to shut out sounds and distractions that don’t bother others?
Is time, money, paper, or “stuff” dominating your life and hampering your ability to achieve your goals?
Do you often shut down in the middle of the day, feeling assaulted? Do requests for “one more thing” put you over the top emotionally?
Are you spending most of your time coping, looking for things, catching up, or covering up? Do you avoid people because of this?
Have you stopped having people over to your house because you’re ashamed of the mess?
Do you have trouble balancing your checkbook?
Do you often feel as if life is out of control, and that it’s impossible to meet demands?
Do you feel like you’re always at one end of a deregulated activity spectrum — either a couch potato or a tornado?
