Description

Hiii ADHD besties!

On today's show, we have our very first ADHD GUESTIE πŸ₯³ the wonderful Alice Gendron. Alice is a diagnosed ADHDer, author and founder of The Mini ADHD Coach @the_mini_adhd_coach (with an audience of over a million across her multiple platforms).

Alice has been such a huge supporter of the podcast since we launched 😍 and joins us all the way from France to help answer some dilemmas and play a round of our all-time-fave Ireggy Seggy: 'choose your torture'. You're going to fall in LOVE with Alice just as much as we did. ❀️‍πŸ”₯

β€’ Dilemma #1 - "I ALWAYS overspend at the supermarket" - We talk about why grocery shopping is so stressful for ADHDers and what happens when the nervous system is overstimulated by the harsh lights, sounds and too much choice. We discuss shopping without a grocery list, how to avoid ending up with piles of unused/rotten food... and Tara gives us hacks around food planning, hyperfixation meals and how to reduce food fatigue - it involves thinking laterally about ingredients. PLUS - Link to Tara's visual shopping cart TikTok video

β€’ Dilemma #2 - "How do I get my Mum to understand that I'm not lazy and I'm trying my best?" - In this commonly asked dilemma we discuss the traits of Inattentive ADHD, how the value of the mental/emotional energy we give others can often be overlooked and why parents may feel guilt about 'not picking up' on their child having ADHD earlier.

β€’ Ireggy Seggy: "ADHD Choose Your Torture: Pt. 2" - We play choose your torture with Alice, making her choose between eating with an ugly fork, wearing lip gloss on a windy day and watching a long lecture on moss. 🫠
