Genre: Religion

People who love or work with someone with ADD often feel conflicted: they want to help, but they don’t want to enable. They value the person’s creativity, but they are exhausted. Stephen Arterburn and Timothy Smith address ten myths about ADD, the pros and cons of medication, foods that help to minimize ADD, twelve strengths of people with ADD, new studies on how to calm the mind, showing empathy even when it’s hard, and more. This fresh look at ADD—not as a malady but as a unique way of thinking—shows readers that ADD doesn’t have to ruin their relationships. In fact, it can make them stronger.

ADHD According to Zo

ISBN: 9781608826636
Release Date: 2013-09-01
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Like many women with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), journalist and popular blogger Zoë Kessler was diagnosed late in life—well into adulthood, in fact. But instead of seeing this label as a burden to bear, Kessler decided to use it to gain a better understanding of herself, and to connect with others through her writing. In this unique and engaging memoir, Kessler shares her own stories of living with ADHD in a way that is relatable, but never predictable. Inside, she describes how her impulsive behavior has affected her love life; how being disorganized once stood in the way of landing a job; and how inattentiveness has caused certain challenges in her relationships. Kessler also offers key coping skills based on her experience; skills that you can use to focus your energy, become more organized, and boost your self-esteem while tapping into creativity and humor. Kessler’s story illustrates how being diagnosed with ADHD late into adulthood can be bewildering, but it also shows what a great opportunity it can be to take stock of your life and make real, lasting changes. Whether you share her diagnosis of ADHD, or just like a good story, ADHD According to Zoë will inspire you and encourage you to embrace your quirks.

Die meisten modernen Beziehungen leiden unter Stress und Zeitmangel. Dank moderner Kommunikationsmittel sind wir immer mehr für andere verfügbar – am Wochenende natürlich auch für den Chef – und immer weniger für die, die uns am liebsten sind. Ausführliche Gespräche und die nötige Aufmerksamkeit, um den Partner mit seinen Sorgen und Bedürfnissen wahrzunehmen, bleiben leider allzu oft auf der Strecke. Edward und Sue Hallowell kennen diese Probleme nicht nur aus ihrer eigenen Ehe, sondern auch aus der beruflichen Praxis. In ihrem Buch beschreiben sie, wie unser moderner Lebensstil – geprägt von Unterbrechungen und Multitasking – die Intimität in Beziehungen gefährdet. Und sie zeigen praktikable und effektive Wege, mit den Herausforderungen unseres stressigen Alltags umzugehen.
