ADHD doesn’t cause anxiety, but it’s common for people with ADHD to suffer from anxiety.
If you feel like you’re stuck in your own head, this is an anxiety-related symptom that can really hurt your quality of life.
Getting out of your head is by far the most difficult symptom of ADHD that I’ve had to deal with. To be perfectly honestly, it’s a daily battle that you constantly have to be mindful of.
But, the good news is that getting out of your head is 100% doable.
Getting out of your own head is a mental and physical process.
First, you have to internalize the belief that you’re ‘good enough’. Believing that you’re ‘good enough’ means that you can do whatever you want to do in life without having to worry about what other people think of you. It’s a powerful mantra to remind yourself of daily.
Secondly, you have to take more action. The process of taking constant action leaves you very little time to think and get stuck in your own head. You need to get busy working on anything to get out of your own head. Actively engage your mind with something. Do push-ups if you have to. Jump around. Just get moving now!
This type of mindset will help you stay present to the moment, and out of your head.
