ADD - Got The Day-to-Day Boredom Blues?

Summary:
ADD people are bored very easily, as you well know if you have ADD.
People call us lazy, but it's not that. We'll put tremendous effort into
things that matter to us, and that we enjoy. But how exciting is washing
dishes or cleaning up a mess of stuff? Not very and it just doesn't
happen. We learn to live with our messes.

Am I right? The dishes could be overflowing the sink, and the dust in the
house might be forming little clumps that are starting to resemble small
animal...

ADD people are bored very easily, as you well know if you have ADD.
People call us lazy, but it's not that. We'll put tremendous effort into
things that matter to us, and that we enjoy. But how exciting is washing
dishes or cleaning up a mess of stuff? Not very and it just doesn't
happen. We learn to live with our messes.

Am I right? The dishes could be overflowing the sink, and the dust in the
house might be forming little clumps that are starting to resemble small
animals. They're scaring your cat. Oh, and then, there's the floor,
littered with all matter of elements--rock, paper, hedge clippers,
whatever. It's just a mess! And you look at that stuff, and say to
yourself, "I'll get to that later," and you never do. Your ADD never
allows it.

Nobody has to live that way, of course. And you can't allow it to go on
indefinitely or the health department will come by and tack a "condemned"
sign on your door. The stuff has to be done, no matter how much your ADD
brain doesn't want to do it. But there's a way to do it painlessly. And
it's so simple that you'll laugh when you read it, but it works. Really.

Here's what you can do...

Maybe you're going to pick up that stuff on the floor and actually put
the hedge clippers in the garage. You really didn't need them to open
that wireless mouse package, but they make it so hard! Well, OK... Get
out your iPod or your CD player or turn on the Sirius, whatever, and
then, crank it up. Really hear it. Then, get your nose involved. Light
some incense or a scented candle that you like. And now, your sense of
taste. Try some sugarless gum or hard candy while you're cleaning up.
Your eyes and hands are already involved, so that will have all your
senses involved and your ADD brain is less likely to balk.

You can get some   added benefit by wearing something you like. What do you
enjoy doing when   you aren't working? Whatever that is, if it's playing
football, put on   the gear while you're straightening up around the house.
You'll be amazed   at how well this stuff works.

And you're set. You'll be dancing around, smelling good smells instead of
last week's laundry, wearing something that makes you feel good, and just
generally getting things done. ADD brains do get bored pretty easily, so
it's important to keep it occupied. If you get really good at this, you
might start to enjoy the chores you hate to do. You never know... ADD
brains just need to be involved all the time. Give every sense something
to do and your place will be clean and orderly. Or, if this doesn't
work... hire someone to do these things for you, if you can afford it.
One way or another, the stuff has to be done. Make it as easy for
yourself as possible.
