ADHD and the Benefits of Using a Paper Planner

I've always had a special relationship with my planner.  It felt like it was my personal assistant, telling me where to be and what to do. As you may know, having ADHD, makes it a real struggle to be organized.  I've tried so many different systems before I could create THE ONE.  I just needed a simple system to quickly see my priorities, where I needed to be and what I needed to do. Don't you like feeling in control and motivated thanks to your planner? 

Here are my top 5 reasons why  a paper planner can help you manage your ADHD

  1. Organization: A paper planner can help you stay organized and on top of your responsibilities.  It provides a physical space to keep track of your appointments, deadlines, and to-do lists. 

  2. Focus:  By breaking down tasks and responsibilities into smaller, manageable chunks, it can help stay focused and avoid getting overwhelmed.

  3. Memory retention: Writing things down on paper has been shown to improve memory retention and recall. This is particularly important for individuals with ADHD who may struggle with forgetfulness.

  4. A sense of control: Having a clear plan in place can help feeling in control  and responsable. This can improve self-confidence and reduce stress and anxiety.

  5. A physical record of progress: A paper planner provides a tangible record of progress and achievements. This can help stay motivated and on track.

If you are not convinced just yet, I recommend you try one.  It might just make all the difference in your ADHD world.
