ADHD life hacks I learnt from my mom

(Updated: )

Here are some life hacks I learnt from a young age from my mom, who I highly suspect is an undiagnosed ADHDer:

  • She taught me to set all my clocks 5 minutes fast so that I’m less likely to be late.
  • Whenever she has something important to remember, she writes it down on her hand with a pen. (This was before smartphones existed.)
  • She drinks her coffee from a flask so that it doesn’t get cold. (She sometimes forgets about the coffee.)
  • My family has a whiteboard near our living room, where we write down all our appointments, important contact numbers and things we need to remember.

Have you learnt any life hacks from your neurodivergent family members?
