Declutter Deck™ and ADHD - Why They Work Together So Well
You know what’s hard? ADHD is hard. It keeps you from getting and staying on task, completing something you started and intended to finish, and being organized. It’s stressful. Especially when you are struggling to keep all the pieces in place. Or, have a young family with tons of toys everywhere. Or work from home. Lots of things keep you from being organized without ADHD. With ADHD, it’s even more of a challenge.
What are the Symptoms of ADHD and Difficulty with Organization?
The symptoms of ADHD vary from person to person, but here are some of the ones that seem to resonate with adults having difficulty staying organized: difficulty focusing (thus unable to complete a task and stay organized), forgetfulness (where are my keys for the millionth time?), lack of concentration about what needs to be done or needs to be done next, problems paying attention to the tasks at hand, and having a short attention span. These issues can keep your life in turmoil. Keeping your space uncluttered with a lack of visual distraction makes a tremendous difference if you struggle with this disorder.
Increase Your Self-Esteem by Getting and Staying Organized
Think what organization success will do to improve your surroundings, and the effect organization success will have on your self-esteem. Not only will you be proud of your home/office/car, but you will also have more self-confidence. You will be in control of your clutter and organization and make your life easier to manage. You’ll be able to see what you own, where you have duplicates, what you can discard, and how to make your environment function best for YOU.
ADHD, Declutter Deck™, and Acquiring a New Organizing Skill
Newly created, Declutter Deck™ organization prompt cards, sold by Life Hack Decks™, is a perfect tool to get you moving in the right decluttering and organizing direction. Examples of prompts in Declutter Deck™ are: Put away ten things, clean out your junk drawer, put your shoes in order, sort through your coat closet…the list goes on. To stay on task for less than an hour at a time is manageable. If a prompt seems daunting, just return it to the pile and pull a different one. No judgment, ever.
Declutter Deck™ is a deck of 52 cards that have short, less-than-an-hour prompts to get your home and life in order. It’s fun – kind of like an organizing and decluttering game. Each card is one organization prompt that provides a small, manageable task for you to complete. This is not a huge time or energy commitment - just a little one. You don’t have to make a to-do list or figure out what in your home looks and feels messy to you.
Instead, just grab one card from Declutter Deck™, perform the prompt, and return it to your pile of finished cards. Do just one single task prompt, no matter how big or small, and you’re finished for the day. Once the entire deck is completed, your home is organized and functions in a way that helps your ADHD improve. And you can repeat the deck again and again for maintenance of your space. This puts you on a track for success!
We truly believe in this system and know it will be a win for you. Give it a try!
