Have you been diagnosed with ADHD? Do you find that daily distractions are ruining your day-to-day productivity? Then watch Annemarie’s vlog to gain insight into our Sensory Intelligence® view.

Firstly, let’s face it, distractions are a part of life. We are all distracted on a daily basis by the busy, sensory overloaded worlds that we live in. For the person with ADHD, however, these distractions are a lot more difficult to navigate and often result in performance and productivity issues. There are many ways to deal with the challenges of living with ADHD, and Annemarie touches on some practical examples in this video.

1. Try to figure out what is distracting you
2. Try to reduce them
3. Create structure

Hopefully once you’ve watched this vlog, she will have given you a snapshot of some of these implementable strategies. Remember there are many famous, very clever people with ADHD including Albert Einstein, Richard Branson, Justin Timberlake and many many more. Annemarie reminds us of this to illustrate that by understanding and managing distractions, we have the capacity to unlock our creative genius.
