Reducing our reactivity and self-regulating our ADHD emotions

Reducing our reactivity and self-regulating our ADHD emotions

By Kate Moryoussef

Today's compilation episode focuses on the challenges and practical solutions to help manage our ADHD emotional dysregulation. These mini excerpts from some of my favourite episodes, focussing on our ADHD big emotions, will hopefully serve as a reminder as we move into another year, this time with more awareness. I hope this episode also nudges you to bring more forgiveness and mindfulness to your daily life in order to calm your nervous system, build your resilience and feel more present.

The clips include:

Lidia Zylowska  - talking about mindfulness, self-regulation and compassionate communication. Reducing reactivity, how to start a difficult conversation. Being non-judgmental in a conflict.

Merriam Saunders - talking about curating a morning routine, reacting to our kids, modelling to your children how to emotionally regulate, noticing the feelings in our body, and balancing our nervous system. 

Tamara Rosier - talking about understanding how to access our 'emotional butler' to calm down. Reaching for more acceptance and recognition of emotional dysregulation with ADHD. Taking time to make energetic buffers and check back in to ensure we're not in a constant frenzy.

Melissa Orlov -talking about how RSD shows up in our daily life, being aware of our intense emotional regulation and sending ourselves compassion to help our relationships. Breaking generational patterns and using more awareness to break cycles. Reward-focussed brain feeling pain easily. Emotional management and quick rage ramp-up tips.

Marcy Caldwell - talking about being derailed by our emotions. Emotional check-ins, small daily tools to help ourselves. How to ease the overwhelm and emotional dysregulation and reactivity - buffer to shed the overstimulation.

Grace Timothy - talking about editing life to help the demands of life, having the awareness to help push forwards with ADHD. Guilt and being cautious - limiting our potential due to burnout and overwhelm and reframing how to do life at different times of our life.
