Mental fatigue can trigger physical, emotional, and psychological exhaustion in adults with ADHD. The COVID-19 pandemic has mentally exhausted millions of people, especially adults with ADHD. Neurofeedback Therapy can be very effective at treating a multitude of ADHD symptoms, including mental fatigue.
Triggers for Mental Fatigue
Stress overload, fear of an unknown future, worries about the health of your loved ones and yourself, sleeplessness, and emotional bombardment all cause fatigue. They also define 2020 for many of us.
Instead of generalizing or fixating on why we feel the way we do, let’s dive deeper and identify the ADHD traits that may be blocking you from moving forward. This is an essential step in fighting mental fatigue, but also impossibly hard when your brain is fogged over and your energy is sluggish at best.
Fighting ADHD Mental Fatigue
It is not recommended to tackle ADHD-related mental fatigue alone. Talking to a professional is the best place to start. Neurofeedback Therapy has been proven to help with many ADHD-related symptoms and is a great place to start. Neurofeedback Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that may help you get past some of your struggles with ADHD.
The pandemic has pushed all of our lives into the unknown. The fear associated with not knowing can be unbearable. We suffer in silence. While current circumstances have forced us to become socially distant, remember that isolating, hiding, and withdrawing is harmful to our mental health. The truth is this: The weight of this situation is too heavy to lift without the help of a loved one, relative, friend, therapist, and/or coach.
Show Yourself Some Compassion
At times, those with ADHD want to work but feel frozen. As hard they try, they cannot jump-start their minds. In addition to the barriers that block a fatigued brain, energy levels can be unpredictable. A void opens up between understanding and effort.
At times like this, it helps to stop fighting. Instead, take a minute to see if you can figure out why you feel so tired. Self-reflection can help you find overarching issues that could be adversely affecting your health.
After taking a look at yourself–whether you discovered anything or not–you will have a talking point when you contact someone for help. Causes and effects may help health care professionals locate the source of your mental fatigue.
