VOOMIE waitlist 💜

For over twelve months we have been working behind the scenes to bring this to our community and its finally time!

For so much of my life, I have felt as though there was something missing when it came to managing my busy brain. I constantly faced struggles with sleep, energy and focus. Medication came with its own challenges and I wanted something natural without the side effects. Unfortunately, nothing on the market was feeling right.

The supplements available were either designed for gym goers or felt very ‘herbal and would often involve taking multiple doses, multiple times a day. I kept asking Barry ‘Why is there, not an ALL IN ONE product that is also yummy?’ Something that gives me what I need to thrive with my busy brain? And of course… Why is there nothing colourful and pretty to give me the dopamine hit I need?

And so VOOMIE was born.

ADHD & The Wall of Trauma

I’ve recently learnt about a concept in the ADHD world / something we come up against and really wanted to share, as perhaps it might help you this week? 

A little context and then I am going to share some bite sized resources for you to soak up in your own time to understand something that is considered “The Wall of Awful”.

Have you ever found yourself approaching / thinking / considering a task and wondered why something that should be considered “easy” – so difficult for you? (I am imagining you virtually raising your hand right now saying YES TARAH, ME! 😜)

I am here to tell you – THERE’S MORE TO THIS! And you are not alone…. Because, same. 

As ADHDers, if there has been a time in your life you have approached a simple task like a phone call and perhaps that call didn’t go quite the way you anticipated? Disappointment brick. Rejection brick. These are emotional bricks that essentially over time, build this emotional “wall” to the task – the wall of awful.

That is explaining this in the simplest of terms, but we thought you may like to listen in a little more detail about this in the below 2 videos. 

We hope these helped!

More tips on Motivating the ADHD Brain

Have you ever heard the term “eat the frog” when referring to productivity or the way in which you may tackle your day (whether it be work or personal)? 

It refers to essentially tackling what we would refer to as our “most challenging task” of the day first. Eg: need to follow-up something, make that doctor’s appointment, make a phone call? Generally, it’s suggested that you do this first and then you can move on with your day with more ease….

Have you tried this and it hasn’t quite worked for you? You aren’t crazy!!! The “Eating the Frog” tactic doesn’t usually work for ADHDers and here’s why:

We have an interest-based nervous system, so for many of us, this approach usually leaves us in a state of ADHD paralysis, and overwhelmed…

So what can we do instead?

We can: “Eat Dessert First”

Instead of starting with the most challenging task, begin your day with a task that is enjoyable or rewarding — your “dessert.” This task should be something that gets you moving and builds your motivation momentum. It could be something small and manageable that gives you a sense of “I did it”, or an activity that you genuinely like.

How “Eating Dessert First” Works:

✨Engagement: Starting with a task you enjoy can increase your engagement and make it easier to start your day on a positive note.

✨Reward: Completing an enjoyable task first provides an immediate sense of reward, which can be motivating and set a positive tone for the day.

✨Momentum: Once you’ve started and completed your “dessert” task, you’ve built some initial momentum. It’s often easier to keep going and tackle more challenging tasks once you’re already in motion.

HOT Tip: Make It Sweet

Choose your “dessert” task the night before, so you know exactly what you’re looking forward to when you start your day. 

➡️Your Activity

Consider your “dessert” task that helps you build motivation for the day, perhaps share it with your partner, a friend, family member?

ADHD & The Importance of Night Time Routine

I wanted to talk a little bit today about the importance of a night time routine when you have ADHD. We all know us ADHERs generally struggle to wind down, calm our brains and relax to be able to get a restful night’s sleep. It’s also very normal to not want a structure and routine (what do you mean I have to act like I am a child again having a set bedtime?)… As mundane as this sounds, our bodies really do function well under a little bit of structure when it comes to sleepy time!

I am not here to tell you to go to bed at 9pm on the dot as LETS BE REAL, even my routine I have created needs to allow flexibility and it’s never perfect – this is why it’s working for me – as I have given myself grace….that sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t (and in those times, I just try again the next day) but just keep consistent where possible. So here’s a few tips (I am not here to share MINE as what works for me won’t for you).

  • A max of 3-5 ‘steps’ 
  • Keep your bedroom as distraction free as possible 
  • Do your best to not throw the routine out the window on the weekends
  • If possible, low or no electronics an hour before bed will do wonders
  • If you are a fidgeter, look into things that might help you to with this (one of our Neurospicy Fam suggests something below) 
  • Lights off at a certain time
  • White noise 

These may all seem rather simple, but when combined, can make a huge difference in getting a restful night’s sleep.

ADHD Key Terms

Have you ever heard the terms Doom Piles, Sensory Processing, ADHD Tax, and Object Blindness?

These are all key terms used within the ADHD world.

When Baz and I met, he had no idea about all of these terms, what they meant and how they affected me. I wish I could say that we quickly realised the importance of Baz understanding them all but it took us a long time….. As I have shared before, Baz and I broke up 3 times in the early days before we really started to understand ourselves and one another and how to best work with my ADHD symptoms together.

I thought in this post I’d share just one of these and how it shows up for me as an ADHDer + once Baz was able to understand it, how he could support me and our relationship did not have to suffer because of it.

Doom Piles …. Here’s a short Tik Tok that we wanted to share to explain more (and cos we love TT and it makes things more fun haha) – HERE

Initially, Baz thought I was just an unorganised mess until he learnt about my Doom Piles! Throughout my house I have lots of baskets – I pile things in there and it may look like a complete mess BUT I know what is in them! And when I have the energy or time, at my own leisure I can sort them out and Baz knows not to touch my baskets!!! Before we learnt this about Doom Piles …. let’s just say there were some disagreements haha!

If you’re in a romantic relationship, it is so important to understand the impact ADHD can have on your relationship. Understanding the key terms used, and what they mean and having a discussion about how you can support one another to manage these is an amazing first step.

I hope this little tip helped!
