Executive Functions - What are they and why are they so important?

Executive functions are our brain's way of helping us regulate our behavior, set and achieve our goals, and manage our daily lives. These skills include time management, task initiation, emotional self-control, and working memory, to name a few. Trouble with executive functions can make it hard to stay focused, follow directions, make decisions, plan tasks and projects, and stay organized.

Many people with ADHD struggle in one or more of these areas, but it is possible to learn how to overcome these obstacles and navigate life more successfully. In coaching, we look at the areas that may be a challenge for you and that may need strengthening. We explore ways to incorporate new strategies and techniques and tap into your own natural strengths and modalities so that you can lead a more productive, fulfilling life.

To learn all about executive functions and why they are so important, listen to the podcast below.
