The holiday season has arrived. Marketers are going all out to encourage us to buy their merchandise, and that, in combination with the festive holiday mood, can cause us to spend beyond our budget. This is especially true for individuals with ADHD. The impulsivity that often accompanies the condition can be a big problem during the holidays. If you have ADHD, here are some strategies you can use to avoid a holiday debt hangover.
The holiday season is here and the holiday marketing push has begun in earnest. We are all susceptible to spending more than we should during the holidays, but the impulsive, quick reacting nature of ADHD makes impulse buying all the more tempting. If you have ADHD and find yourself being pulled into a spending vortex, here are some tips that can help – not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year.
The holidays should be a time to celebrate with friends and family, but all too often they can be a time of stress and unhappiness. For those with ADHD, the holidays can be both stimulating and overwhelming. There is shopping to do, parties and events to attend, and cards to write. Taking time to solve your holiday planning problems before they crop up will help you (and your loved ones) enjoy the season and start the new year energized, refreshed, and happy.
