  • Constantly Broke? Blame It on Your Adult ADHD
    Do you feel like you are constantly broke and can't do anything about it? Do you have ADHD as well? As this eMedTV segment explains, there is actually a link between ADHD and money problems. Read on to learn more and what you can do about it.
  • Control Those Impulses
    We've all bought things that, at the time, we just had to have and then later realized we could have lived without. For people with ADHD, this can happen way too often, leaving them not only with less money, but with stuff they don't need cluttering up the house. Pay attention to when you seem prone to impulse buying -- do you need to stay away from online shopping sites, or are shopping channels on TV your downfall? Try this experiment: The next time you buy something unplanned, don't open it when you get home. Instead, leave it in the trunk of your car or a hall closet next to the front door. Keep the receipt taped to it. Wait 24 hours. If you still want the item then, keep it. However, if it isn't that appealing anymore or you have any inkling of regret, back it goes! You might be out shipping or restocking fees, but you're still better off financially.
  • Cut the Carbs
    Cut the simple carbs, that is. Your brain and nervous system actually need carbs to function properly. But complex carbs are the better option, including legumes (beans, lentils, dried peas), fresh fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. Don't be fooled by processed foods that are labeled "whole grain." When a grain is processed even a small amount, it loses some nutritional value and gains more starch. Eat grains in their natural form as much as possible.
