Calming Down Overstimulation
Over stimulated? Confused? Distracted? Consistently, pulled in many directions? Exhausted and fatigued from the mind perpetually being overworked? - You Are Not Alone!
Hyperstimulation is directly proportion to the chaotic world in which we reside. Access and exposure to the news in real time via the television 24/7 – the use of social media and its ability to interact with people around the world within a split second; while having friends and work who want accessibility around the clock. This environment places all of us at a disadvantage – we must permit our minds to have some control and time off. The mind needs downtime to be able to rest and recharge. We understand and acknowledge the sensitivity and value of each individual mind and the care it requires/demands. At Beautiful Minds and Body Clinic we have the correct formula that assists in achieving a therapeutic balance deemed cathartic.
According to the Mayo Clinic Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem, and other problems.
Adult ADHD symptoms may include:
Low frustration tolerance
Disorganization and problems prioritizing
Frequent mood swings
Poor time management skills
Problems following through and completing tasks
Problems focusing on a task
Trouble coping with stress
Excessive activity or restlessness
What's typical behavior and what's ADHD?
Almost everyone has some symptoms similar to ADHD at some point in their lives. If your difficulties are recent or occurred only occasionally in the past, you probably don't have ADHD. ADHD is diagnosed only when symptoms are severe enough to cause ongoing problems in more than one area of your life. These persistent and disruptive symptoms can be traced back to early childhood.
ADHD has been linked to:
Poor school or work performance
Alcohol or other substance misuse
Frequent car accidents or other accidents
Trouble with the law
Poor physical and mental health
Making the diagnosis will likely include:
Physical exam, to help rule out other possible causes for your symptoms
Information gathering, such as asking you questions about any current medical issues, personal and family medical history, and the history of your symptoms
ADHD rating scales or psychological tests to help collect and evaluate information about your symptoms
Standard treatments for ADHD in adults typically involve medication, education, skills training and psychological counseling. A combination of these is often the most effective treatment. These treatments can help manage many symptoms of ADHD, but they don't cure it.
