“Those who make the worst of their time most complain about its shortness.” ~ La Bruyere
What is ADHD?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active.”
What is Time Blocking?
Time Blocking is when you divide your days into different time blocks – focusing on one thing at a time for a particular time.
Time blocking is crucial and used by those who optimize their time and are peak performers.
Taking time to block off specific periods of time throughout your day for particular work can do wonders for you (both in the short and long term).
Does Time Blocking Help with ADHD?
Time blocking absolutely helps those with ADHD.
Time blocking is a great way to help one who struggles with focus, focus on one thing for an extended period of time.
When too much is expected, one can reach cognitive overload. When there is too much stimulation, one can become distracted.
It is essential to know that, although those who have ADHD may have difficulty concentrating, setting oneself up for success can lead to success. This happens through discipline, grace, and habits.
Disciplining oneself to learn the art of time blocking can lead to completing what is expected.
Time blocks should be one hour for those with ADHD. If need be, these hour blocks can be split up into 25-minute work sessions, followed by a five-minute break.
Breaks can include walking around, listening to music, stretching, going outside… whatever is relaxing or enjoyable can be considered a break.
