As we wrap up 2021, let's revisit a few of Motherhood in ADHD's top-rated episodes. Today's "Episode Encore" is all about understanding emotional regulation and how executive function plays a part in how people with ADHD manage their emotions.
Explaining ADHD WITHOUT discussing Executive Function is like reading a book and skipping every other chapter. It just doesn't make sense because you lose part of the context, right?
Executive functioning is the CEO of our brain. And as the CEO of our brain if regulates pretty much everything in today's discussion about Emotional Regulation.
Today we cover the basics around sensory overload, fear, fight or flight, frustration, children pushing our buttons, anger, embarrassment, period cycles, hormones, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, Bipolar, and Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria.
Holy Moly, Batman! Lots of juicy good stuff in this one. Have a listen and let's learn about our ADHD brains and how they work.
