Explore strategies to save money
Connect dopamine and finances in a healthy way

YOUR AI ASSISTANT IS ON SALE! If you have known me for a second, you know I live by my Amazon Echo and my Dot. I even have her trained to remind me to drink water by playing sounds with “water” in the title every hour while I work. I am for sure chasing waterfalls.
You don’t need a fancy one. Get an old one. Amazon has the 3rd generation Dot on sale half off (less than $20). It’ll do!
Wondering how to use this sweet thing? Check out a previous essay about it called “Meet Alexa, My Digital ADHD Assistant.”
I hear from so many people noting that they were previously misdiagnosed with anxiety or depression or that they suffer from it along with their ADHD. If that’s you, you are NOT alone!
Some quick facts on anxiety and depression and ADHD:
Anxiety (72%) and depression (70%) are the two most common comorbid conditions diagnosed alongside ADHD in adults
Often caused by low self-esteem and a poor self-image caused by ongoing feelings of being overwhelmed by life due to ADHD symptoms
Excellent ways to combat anxiety and depression are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness

This playlist. This one right here. Can I tell you the happiness this one brings me? It’s so lovely. I mean, Glass Animals brings all the bilateral joy, but this music is a nice subtle brain tickle. So if you just want good music with little “what the heck is happening?” this is a great go-to.
If you are looking for a playlist for a certain activity, let me know, and I can do some digging!
