ADHD OASIS Meetup [VIRTUAL]: Running the ADHD Marathon | Burning Out from Not Slowing Down
You Are Not Alone
Join us on Thursday December 21st for New Tech's ADHD OASIS Meetup: Running the ADHD Marathon | Burnout from Not Slowing Down
Overexertion, taking on too much, over-scheduling to the point having too much to do and no time to do it will eventually cause life to come to a screeching halt. When you are burning the candle from both ends you are bound to burnout. Burnout is that extreme fatigue that happens when you dont take time to rest and it is much more prevalent among those with ADHD. In this meetup we will discuss strategies to prevent burnout.
Join us for New Tech Northwest's ADHD OASIS Meetup. This virtual event will combine community and coaching to support you in building supportive systems for managing your neurodiverse brain. Discover how to decrease your neurodiverse challenges while building relationships with fellow ADHDers and neurodiverse peers who are on similar journeys.
You can attend these virtual Meetups on the third Thursday of every month. The more Meetups you attend, the more peer connections you'll make with other professionals who have neurodiverse brains like you. Instead of being lonely in your experience, come laugh, learn, and connect with your community.
During the Meetups we'll share struggles as well as systems and strategies to overcome your executive functioning and working memory challenges like anxiety, overwhelm, miscommunication, interrupting, inattentiveness, stress, distractibility, procrastination, paperwork fails, imposter syndrome, having to mask your neurodiversity at work, and weak organization skills. Welcome!
