For example, making transitions from one situation to another is a challenge for people with ADHD. They have difficulty in shifting focus; this tendency is called being hyper-focused. I read about a simple technique that might help (see ADHD CoachBlog, www.additudemag.com). The author mentioned that at times, it is hard for her to get off the couch and go to bed late at night when she is tired. She focuses on the TV shows, even though she would rather go to bed and get a good night’s sleep. Turning off the TV, sitting up, getting off the couch, and then walking up fourteen steps to the bedroom is a major challenge.
