Your weekly ADHD tips, tricks, resources, and info
Well, I think March is done throwing me every curve ball it could imagine! I took some time to play around with my newest love, Miro Boards (more on that soon!) to plan out some content for you guys for the whole next month! I am so excited about some cool, fun, and helpful changes for you to maximize what you get out of this weekly newsletter!
New format - In the name of focus, each week will center on a theme that we can explore and apply to our lives to see some changes and to live better and easier with more knowledge!
Weekly essay - As to not inundate your inbox, I will now create a link to the weekly essay in this resources newsletter, which will now come out on Wednesday for a mid-week check-in!
Music AND podcasts - Some of you are big podcast listeners, and there are so many resources for us! Also, y’all are a little burnt out on playlists. So each week will alternate a playlist and a podcast resource!
Stay tuned next week for a whole deal on healthy eating!
Wait. Affordable business coaching? For people with ADHD? Ran by neurospicy people? What? Yes! We want ALL of that!
If you have your own business, whether you want to start one, already have one, or want to scale one, let me introduce you to your new besties. HOLY CRAP, have these ladies changed my life. I finally feel like I know what I’m doing with my life.
You may have seen these ladies around TikTok. It’s a remarkable way to get business help that is fluid, practically on-demand, creative, and fun. I’ve also met lots of great ADHDers doing amazing things and I can’t wait to show you what they have for us!
One of the biggest “aha” moments I had when I was learning about my ADHD was related to emotional dysregulation. I struggled most of my life, feeling like my emotions were always out of control. Sound familiar?
There’s been a lot of talk this last week about new research connecting angry issues directly to ADHD and emotional dysregulation.
Consider these facts:
About 70 percent of adults with ADHD report problems with emotional dysregulation
Individuals with ADHD may also be prone to directing their anger inward
Those with high level of symptoms of ADHD are more likely to have deficiencies in emotional regulation

Psychology Today - Overcoming Destructive Anger
In cleaning out my inbox, I had a price alert that these bad boys are deeply discounted right now. You may remember these from my TikTok where I share that part of my house is perfectly organized, and other parts are a disaster. Missed it? It’s here:
For real, the reason we love an organized kitchen is that when we know exactly where things are, our brains find fewer distractions. So, containers with labels trick our brains. And they’re cute. For real.
I really want to work to ensure that ADHDers have a safe place where they can get support, make friends, and learn. As a paid member of Late to My Own Party, you get all kinds of fun things to help you navigate life with ADHD and to be part of a supportive, safe community of like-minded (literally, our brains work the same way) people. Upgrading also helps support this content and allows me to do work to help us all feel more seen and understood.
