Are you always late, do you miss appointments, lose your keys, forget your phone, miss deadlines at work on projects, have to pay penalties on late returns for paying tax?

We can all be impacted by chronic disorganization - whether it be because of long term stress, menopause, diagnoses of ADHD and/or autism (to name just a few of the very many reasons). It has nothing to do with being stupid or lazy.  Some brains are wired differently, and understanding this is the way forward to allow us to delegate, find strategies and systems in place to manage our day to day lives - whether in our personal or professional lives. 

Overcoming Chronic Disorganization will help you recognize your behaviours and put systems in place to help day-to-day tasks seem less overwhelming and challenging. It looks at the triggers and symptoms of CD, at the role of ADHD and/or autism, and at their impact on executive function. From this background of better understanding, you will discover strategies for organizing and decluttering, advice on dealing with things like procrastination, and how to develop healthy habits and keep them going.

Whether for you or for a loved one, this book is full of actionable points and wise, compassionate support and is the first step on your journey to a calmer and more organized life.
