    I have wondered why some things I’m laser-focused on and other things I’m totally unmotivated. I’m hyperfocused at work (I love my work) and I am online more than I should be and focused on this as well. I’m terrible on self care. I shower a couple of times per week and I don’t brush my teeth as often as I should. I don’t think I dislike doing these things but I have no motivation to do them. I’m doing a pretty job not impulse shopping. After listening to this podcast about motivation, I’ve discovered that the things that I should do but don’t, don’t offer immediate gratification or a dopamine hit. I’m also terrible at managing my time. I’m still working out some systems to help me with this. Now while I admit that when I take a shower, I feel better afterwards but still I manage not to find the time for it. I need a lot of help to help me deal with this issue and I admit it. I will need to find some kind of reward (at least for a while) that I can give myself when I take the time for self-care. At least now with this podcast, I know why I don’t take care of myself as I should. Kristen, I appreciate this particular podcast very much. I’m going to send a link to it to my wife so she can understand me better but she’s dealing with some tough issues too agoraphobia, complex PTSD and depression. I want to be a source of support for her too. Again, I’m working on this. Getting my ADHD under some sort of control or learning how to adapt and make my ADHD work for me is a big step in this. Thank you very much for this podcast. I’ll listen to it a few more times until you record some new podcasts. 🙂
