In our last episode, we talked about the power of taking a brief pause “in the moment” and how that one practice can revolutionize your ADHD life. But there’s a different kind of pause—we’ll call it the intentional pause—that is an absolute requirement for those of us with ADHD.

If you’ve ever had your brain shut down on you right when you needed it the most, then you know what we mean when we say that your brain will take a break if you don’t give it one.

This is because our high-output brains can do amazing things in certain circumstances… but they can’t sustain that output indefinitely. Learning the rhythms of your brain and how to give it what it needs is an essential component of properly managing your ADHD.

In this episode, you’ll learn the 5 types of intentional pauses that you can use to keep your brain cooperating with you. Listen now!
