  • My exams still not here, but watching this I cried even louder, I want it to be over already, what have you done:( (jk love your vids)

  • LOL I was in Niagara Falls last month for two weeks. 😉 Awesome place. There are a TON of other good spots there if you decide to go again 😉

  • There’s a difference between shopping spree and fulfilling your dreams or buying stuff for your hobby. It lasts and whenever you look at that thing it makes you happy. Experiences are cool but can be easily forgotten. I barely remember anything from my trip to Rome 20 years ago. But I still have a mascot from 15 years ago, bough to me by my father. See the difference? That bashing connection to material things has to stop because it’s false.

  • I have to compliment you on this exceptional compilation….I love doing my work to such music, it allows me momentary mental escapes to paradise beaches, rainforests, treks through lunar landscapes. Fantastic job!

  • Microdosing LSD is treating ADHD. Check out Dr. Fadiman’s Protocol for Microdosing. Psychedelic science is the Revolution in the Mental Health Science. Psychedelics are The Storm!

  • I’m a young person who has SA(I think)and I never told my family about this stuff because why should they know about the stuff I look up or do I’m a kid so I can just be acting dramatic I think this video fits me I think I got it from my sister who uhhhh acts like a bully to me but maybe I’m being soft? She talks about things she like but I don’t ever like what she talking about but I don’t like when people yell at me so I just sit and listen I don’t know how to man up and tell her to stop there bigger and stronger and I’m a very lazy person who doesn’t like fighting

  • If I stop doing all work while on vacay, it will take me a month to get back to doing my work. I’m self-employed so that’s a problem if it takes me that long to adjust.

  • I’m building my snooker 19 channel up I would love your support plz feel free to join me for a match and would be much grateful for your support so please make my day by subscribe to my channel plz leave a like ��. �� TUFF BOSS LIVE �� Manny thanks to all ��

  • I usually feel like this. Sometimes whenever I want to communicate to my friends, I usually have a lot of insecurities about myself. Many times I don’t feel confident about myself

  • My tip have someone that will MAKE you double check that you have everything before leaving your very special and irreplaceable comfort item behind………

  • Hi people, nice content here. We have also been making relaxing videos since December 31st and maybe someone is interested in what we are doing, I would be happy if you drop by with a click. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl9xM903S2Zp6S7uYWmMRvA

  • Having thousands of followers and friends on social media is an illusion of having friends. Best is to be in touch with yourself and people will feel in touch with you. You can connect with yourself and never feel lonely. Secret but simple techniques that you can learn to be happy with yourself. Learn here: https://vineetbasantani.com/

  • Hey Brains! Check the description for the link to the budget tracker, and yeahhh we totally misspelled Niagara Falls oops. Hope the tips are helpful tho! Add your vacation tips here!!!

  • Recovery days are great.

    I am fortunate enough to have a career that accrues vacation time, and one thing I always have to do for the come-down is schedule a vacation day for the first work day after I get home.

    Even if I am coming home Friday night or on a Saturday, I am taking that Monday off and it helps loads.

  • Humans can’t sleep upright? tell that to the student me with 2 hours comute to school, half of which happens via full train where u can’t find a seat…

  • If my friends are watching this please read it because i never usually tell you about this kind of stuff im secretly depressed and i dont even tell my own parents this even reaching 100 followers on tiktok didnt cheer me up ve been through alot and yall dont listen to me when im telling you im not ok when you ask me who am i kidding im always “okay”what my body thinks but i never listen to my heart you dont know what ive been through fir example i got the virus or i never git to meet my beloved grandpa or the person ive spent my childhood with is gonna die and leave me upset but 2 or 3 months ago ive discovered you guys dont even care about me why even be my friend if you hate me why even vote for me as group leader if you dont care about me someone tell me why am i even alive

  • I don’t know man, when I go somewhere I just go wherever they tell me to. I don’t know about lists, and bills, and paperwork, and planning, and all the things that make stuff happens. That was never my department as a kid, and apparently I’m still a kid. I just go with it, whatever and wherever, and enjoy the moment.

    I also like to travel as light as I can. (If I can get something there, or if they have something that will work just fine, then I don’t need to bring it.)
    I also have no expectations in life. My happiness is not dependent on achieving something or getting something/somewhere. I’m happy because I choose to be, that’s it. I was even happy when I was sad! Hard to explain that one. I do with what I have. I don’t expect any specific outcome, I don’t feel like life owes me anything. Life doesn’t care about me, it’s just life, it has no conscious.

  • It sucks way more when you had such good friends and then they left, because you remember how fun it is to not be alone and I hate it

  • If you are reading this, pls take a few minutes of your day to listen into one single song i produced. If you like this kind of ambient, chill out music, you wont be dissappointed.
    I highly appreciate your time, the beginning is hard.

  • Just got my diagnosis today (I’m 25 years old) and your channel really helped throughout the entire process!! It’s amazing how emotional it is to know that I’m not “just lazy” and am not alone. THANK YOU!

  • I’m planning on taking a long journey over seas. I’m trying to figure out how to manage my ADHD without necessarily having to find prescriptions filled when I’m in the middle of nowhere. Beyond meditation, diet, and sleep, is there anything specifically you could suggest I check out?:) I really love these videos. Keep it up!!

  • If you live somewhere like Europe, where there’s lots to see within driving distance, a camper is perfect!
    You can take everything you need with you and if you don’t get as far as you wanted to, or just feel like going down that interesting path in a different direction; no problem! Your bedroom (and everything else) travels with you!

  • I was lonely from time to time before this pandemic. Now every day has become full of emptines without any light at the end of the tunnel:/

  • I had a really bad anxiety attack a few weeks ago and for some reason it kept me from being able to fall asleep for 4 days

    By the 4th day it was sooo hard for me to remember anything. And i was physically and mentally exhausted.

  • hey (: idk if u will see this but i basically have suffered from most adhd symptoms since i can even remember and now more than ever but my parents aren’t at all the type to take their kids to the doctors and they’ll just tell me to deal with it but i don’t wanna get old and finally realise all this time i could’ve had help with it if i’d done something about it so what do you recommend i do? (:

  • This video helped me so much in coping with shame I’ve felt on trips and vacations before. I always felt like the wet blanket on trips because I didn’t want to cram something fun into every nano second. I’ve stayed for hours alone in a hotel room on multiple trips, miserable because family and friends were out having fun while I was, I now know, was having a meltdown from too much stimulation. But I couldn’t put anything into words and frequently was badgered about my “odd” or “princess” like behavior. What made me feel worse is I wasn’t normally like that! I knew I got overwhelmed easily, but travelling brought out something in me I rarely saw and couldn’t explain. Now I know it was my ADHD. Thanks, Jessica!

  • I wasn’t sure whether or not I should request the day after my vacation off. This video has cemented that I definitely should! Thanks!!!!!

  • Nice choice of vacation spot! Wish I had known you were going to be in this area. Honestly, one great part of a vacation is getting to see places and things. Its more of an “agenda driven” vacation. Its easier, for me anyway, to go see and experience things, than just “spend time at the beach”. A good idea for people who are going somewhere to see specific things (aka Niagara Falls), is to connect with friends and locals near the area beforehand. They can give you ideas about places to see, tourist traps to avoid, best times to go to avoid crowds, and side trips to see things you hadn’t thought of. (You totally should have come down to Letchworth State Park!) If I plan a trip to an area I’ve never been to, I try to connect with some people through a common interest (fellow ADHD’ers, car clubs, geocaching clubs). They can be a great resource, both for planning, and once you get there. Also, if anything happens, its nice to have someone to reach out to that knows their way around the area. If you are driving somewhere, having a GPS (that isn’t on your phone) can help navigate, even without a cell signal.

  • I plan to go to Japan with my mother. We sort of don’t want to make a plan, because we fear that will get in the way of us having fun.

  • Hey, I need some advice or help idk what to call it ����. So lots of my teachers have told my counciler about them thinking I have adhd because of the way I behave. I want to tell my mum I think I have it but I have to idea how to tell her since I’ve been experiencing things people with Adhd get and it’s very difficult yet I would hate to self diagnose �� any ideas??xx

  • This is great, I have been travelling for last 7 years, and now have visited all Disneys/Universal studios except Paris. When I started I planned everything months in advance, and like you said, the planning is part of the adventure. researching things to do, costs, booking. I found it better to book all activities and prepay as much as you can. I use travify as my itinerary and I share that with family so they know my plans. I use klook to pre buy discounted tickets to theme parks, airport shuttle, wifi, meals, cruises, tours, etc.
    I found pre-paying as much as you can saves the stress of worrying if you go over budget.

    Take a prepaid travel card and deposit your spending money. Get on that accepts multiple currencies and then you can convert daily so you get the best deal. I use qantas cash or velocity wallet. Also as the card is not attached to your bank account, if it gets stolen they dont have access to further funds.

    Have a translator on your phone. I have been to China a few times and Japan. Translator has come in handy.

    As ADHders we love stuff out of the box, so look up things like festivals, red carpet movie events, holiday traditions, even volunteer.
    I volunteered to DJ at Palm springs pride a few years back and built a trip to the us around that. This was an amazing experience.
    I had another hollywood visit during halloween and found they played an anniversary event of Nightmare before xmas at the el capitane theatre. Again something to experience that you cant always do.

    As ADHDers I think we always look for something unique in life, so think of other cool ways to enhance your trip. Another thing I do is get a tattoo wherever I travel,. They are like my postcards. Plus I always get at least 1 printed photo for my photo wall.

    Oh and be prepared to get frustrated. Different cultures have different habits. Chine is the worst for me because I can’t stand it when people invade my personal space of push in lines. I have learnt to just use my hand signals to say wait your turn….or I just let loose!!!
    Have fun everyone! Travelling is by far the best life experience!

  • Sometimes I wonder if it’s good for me to be indulging in ADHD inspired youtube channels and reddit pages because, all though its a community of people just like you, it also feels like a community of people that are proud of what they have-which for me is a really life detrimenting condition. I don’t want to feel like how i’m acting is acceptable, but at the same time I appreciate knowing that i’m not alone. Its weird, but just the comment sections of these videos are all “you know you have adhd if you’re reading the comments 10 seconds into the video” etc, which is true! I am doing that, but it kind of makes it seem like its okay, and I feel like can cause people to further indulge themselves in behaviors like this. Also I should really study for my chem final.

  • I wish the people around me weren’t total jerks. I have some good friends, but legit everyone around me just wants to sample, be mean to me, or just be straight up dumb and mess with me. I would probably talk to them more. I wanna got to a better school:/

  • I don’t have ADHD, but my husband and both kids do. This channel has been amazing for living with my Brains.
    Thank you for that!

  • The sleep deprivation one is literally me middle of the school year. I was a sophomore I’m going to die next year as a junior. I would go to school, go to after school events which could end anytime between 5 and 10 and then do homework until 2-6am. I legitimately got 4 hours of sleep max 1-hour minimum every night and felt like I was sick and like I was going to die. I did have random hallucinations, microsleeps, and I just wanted to sleep.

  • hey! do you take emails or something? i have ADHD and I kinda want to talk to someone who has it as well. if you don’t, thank you for making these videos.

  • Get to the airport early!! Like… SUPER early cause you will forget something like… passports! Having a lot of time before your flight is good

  • Good video. The author is a great fellow. There is a similar group, with a novice author. Estimate. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBQv8h9JPsSOjeGZOYSefHQ

  • My best advice is do not rush! Rushing to arrive places is what takes away most of the enjoyment for me, bringing me just more stress. I admit that planning ahead does help (but honestly I am super likely to forget even if I write it down). So if I have to decide between saving money and saving me from stress, I choose the later. If I have to book a flight I tend to choose a later flight so I don’t have to rush to the airport (or wake up too early) and If I go overseas, Ideally I’d like to take a day or two of lower activity to recover from jetlags. Also I like to remind myself that for every problem there is always a solution, there is always another flight in case you miss it and a change of plans is never out of question, what really matters is having a great time.

  • The abolition of the dislike sign should be applied to all YouTube videos. The value or the acceptance of a video could be expressed just from the numbers of its views or the number of its “likes”. Just a proposition to the YouTube authorities!

  • Jessica, you are the best. Thanks for all the useful tips! Now I’m looking forward to my Vegas trip in July! Even though it’s a work trip to a conference. BTW, were you a cashier in an episode of Monk?

  • I have Sleep Apnea and have fallen asleep standing up as well as alkommmmmmmmmm (Just woke back up.. realized I fell asleep again at the keyboard. Sorry. True Story!!)

  • I lived in my bed all summer. My room is my kingdom. When school starts I begin to go out more. For me it is hard. School is a torture because of the teachers and my classmates, so I need 3 months of doing nothing.

  • There was once a man who had a strict father and was isolated during his teenage years. He was denied from his dream school and later became homeless. Even after all of that, he fought for his country and became well-known for his actions…

    …this man was Adolf Hitler.

  • I have that flavor of ADHD that combines with dyslexia so in my eyes what you’re doing on YouTube is so impressive. There are very few people with ADHD that are as courageous as you are. Because of people like you I’m going to stay in the game, continue the struggle, Keep On Keepin On. The contribution you are making to other BRAINS is incalculable. Thank you so much!

  • I just passed my college admission test and I’m now qualified to study nursing and I really need to de stress so very thank you for this video <333

  • This feels like music for fairytales, so peaceful, with much feeling and story behind them. I can see visuals forming in my head, this music is great!

  • Idk if this is normal but sometimes when I’m really tired I start dreaming well I’m falling asleep and strat thinking in a dream way before I am fully asleep

  • Can you please do a video on how ADHD changes with age so from childhood to adulthood because I get so many people saying the symptoms change at different stages of life but everyone says different things, and I’m 17 and still hyperactive most of the time so it would be great for someone to confirm how that all works!

  • 1) If you’re going to a destination with dozens of attractions, make an A-list of places to visit, a B and maybe a C. This way you’ll see everything that’s important but also have some wiggle room in case some museum is closed or took you less or more time than anticipated.

    2) Pick a travel guide and let it “decide” what to see, where to eat and where to party. Lonely Planet are great, and so are Merian’s (there may be others I do not know but are good, too!).

    3) Once you have your list and your guide, check which sites have free entry on which days. Often these are different days and if you plan wisely, you can save a lot of money that you can then spent on pleasures, or on ‘not overspending’ (once I managed to visit 3 museums and the royal castle in Madrid for free just by planning by free entry days, and could spend the saved money some 60€ on restaurants and other pleasures). You can then make a flexible “puzzle” with the other paid activities on the other days or hours.

    4) Consider buying a city pass for 2, 4 or 6 days (or whatever you destination offers, depending on the length of your stay and the number of attractions included that you want to visit). It will shorten the time you spend waiting in lines, save you money on the entry tickets, make some planning decisions for you (as you will want to put all the sites included in the city pass to be visited during the validity of the pass). In some cities it even works as a public transport ticket! (which again saves you money and the trouble in figuring out which ticket you should buy or worse, the money on a penalty if you are caught without a valid ticket).

    5) If you are travelling with several people and/or using various currencies, use the Splitwise app. All can enter their spendings they made in any currency, and the app keeps track of how much who owes whom. Less potential for fights over money.

    6) Consider having a wishlist of stuff you’d like or need (e.g. in your phone or journal) and dedicate separate budget for that (which you won’t spend on general vacation budget). If you need e.g. a new summer dress or shoes, and you have time to visit shops, do so on your vacation. Buy things you love on your destination, if this is something you were planning to buy anyway. This way you have a personal souvenir from your vacation that is actually useful and likely a thing that you wouldn’t buy at home, as there may be stores you don’t have at home.

    7) Oh, also: in the EU while you need to have some ID with you all the time, it doesn’t need to be the passport or even the original document. Bring a copy of you passport and have it in your purse, while your passport is kept save in the hotel’s safety deposit. Or use your driving licence instead.

  • Split driving travel into multiple days. We split a 10 hour drive into two days and the stress was significantly less than squeezing all that into one day.

  • The last vacation I took, I wrote a list but I also had to pack for my daughter. Thus, I ended up not packing important medication. This year, I plan on making the list but making sure I check off each and every thing, including each and every medication. Fortunately, my daughter is older and doesn’t want to come with us. Thank you for this video very helpful.

  • ****LOOK!!** I was diagnosed with ADD a few weeks ago. Today I was prescribed Ritalin. I used to abuse Adderall so my wife is guilting me about taking the Ritalin. Any advice?

  • Borden comes from boring people you should know how to entertain yourself especially if you’re an adult you would have more friends if you weren’t so boring they would want to spend time with you if you’re good company

  • I usually go to out of state conventions for my vacation so I have a schedule built in from panel and event times. I pick out the ones I really want to go to, ones that sound interesting if I have the time, and block out a time to go to the Marketplace. Fitting lunch in is a little… hard for me because there is just so many things I want to do! It also helps that I get to meet up with friends that already have plans who will invite me along. I tried a solo trip with no plan and didn’t really do much of anything so scheduling is really important for me!

  • If I stay anywhere for 4 or more days, I unpack into the dresser and/or closet if there is one. Otherwise, my suitcase looks like a bomb went off and I have a harder time keeping track of my belongings.

  • On holiday with my favourite brain on road trip after 26 hours of driving (and seeing things) car died at 1 am in SLC, got it dropped off at place, rapidly hired car, continued driving to event, slept, saw concert, greyhounded back and entertained entire bus between us. Slept for few days and chilled out laughing at it all. Madcap, but fun. Key points? Budget for emergencies, stick to allocated driving times, make the most of things going wrong. It will all be okay.

  • Heyyy!! Jessica thank you so much for spreading awareness on ADHD would you kindly make a video on defiance and denial? Do ADHD tend to deny facts and mask themselves and also do exactly the opposite out of defiance? Bring up such a video…

  • I’m pretty sure that cat thing is to see if you’re breathing that’s why they crawl on infants and humans. If you were dead they’d probably start eating you

  • I just started lucid dreaming and literally had an inception moment where the ppl in my dream knew I knew I wasn’t awake and they just stared at me it was freaky af.

  • I love the idea of including “something goes wrong” on your vacation list!:) It will, so why not add a little humor and have a realistic expectation about it?:) Love your videos!!!

  • I love your videos, because my little sister who has ADHD, and I found your chanle because I wanted to learn what I chod do to help, but something I actually like is that my sister wants my attenson, but i dont hawe the energy that i need to plese her, and then she gets angry, and then i dont know hwat to do but then she hates herself, and comes to me hwit tears and want to just sit at my lap, hwat can i do betther?

  • If this guy was asked to do a eating challenge i bet his intro would start as “back when I was a soldier in the military, we ate some pretty odd stuff back in the military days, so like in the military I’m going to do a eating challenge, this reminds me of my military days back in the military”

  • Lol they do t wanna talk to me anyway I feel like a ghost and like they are not caring what I say when somone say “MK” if feel like they don’t car or “K” that’s makes me feel really bad

  • Hi. I diagnosed with adhd recently and I’m in iran. Here, there are lots of advertisements for neurofeedback which say that it’s really effective and can treat your adhd completely and for ever. I didn’t find video about this in your channel. Would please help me with that? Is it really as good as they say?(It became some kind of businesses here, sessions are very expensive☹️)

  • I have ADHD And i have been on methylfenidate 40 mg for a few days but since 2 days the medicine has stopped working.what has happened?i am not able to learn new things.

  • Hi Jessica, I don’t know if I have ADHD or not for sure, but I looked up the symptoms and they’re all what what I’m going through as described and I have listened to a couple of your things, it sounds like it makes sense for me. I am almost 30 years old, I have had probably 50 jobs at least, just a guess. I either keep getting fired or I quit thinking that something else would be better. I feel like I have messed my life up completely when it comes to trying to get a good career. People have always thought I was weird and not the social norm if that makes sense. But I know that I can’t deal with this with a clear head anymore. I need help and jumping from job to job has hurt me trying to get insurance to be able to see a doctor. I don’t know what to do. I’m not trying to make anyone feel sorry for me, I’m just crying out for help. I have had people tell me to just get out of my own head and deal with it, but apparently they don’t understand what’s going on. I am socially awkward, when I get around somebody and my real self comes out, they think differently of me than they would others. I don’t know what to do. But I’m going to continue watching your videos and subscribing to your channel so that I can see if there’s a way that I can be happy in life and be successful.

  • Can you have adhd but still get good grades??
    I tend to space out in class, or in conversations, or in driving lessons (thats a real issue). I get good grades without studying a lot because i like learning, but its really hard for me to start studying, and when i do, i take forever to do it. I have always felt like i am too slow doing everything and i just dont get why other people arent like that…but i get good grades, soooo…
    I am afraid of not having ADD and the problem being just my personality……

  • My sister claims she doesn’t have a bestfriend yet the girl she claims she isn’t even friends with comes over and literally leave me out having fun and yet everyone always say I have friends and make them easily but I never even had a friend have a sleepover at my house in my life. I just wanna fucking die already

  • I am not alone in the physical sense.
    I talk to people.
    My parent. My friends online (video calling and all) but I just don’t feel it.
    Every conversation feels meaningless. It’s like I’m there and I’m showing that I’m feeling stuff: happiness, joy, sorry whatever but I’m actually not feeling it. It just feels I’m just emotionally detached and am just a floating amorphous blob.

    I want to connect but I can’t. It’s like I don’t feel anything or anyone’s presence has value to me.

    Talking physically is distracting, yes, but I don’t take any feelings away from that conversation.

    I tried to increase the time I talk to people but I don’t want to do that either. I’ve always preferred to be reserved. I’ve never been a loner but I don’t really like talking to people all that much. It feels like a chore.

    But I want to talk to people and feel stuff. I’ve noticed that I’m a bit emotionally detached since childhood but the past few days have been really bad (previously it was just sporadic).

    It really feels sick. I feel like there’s this oppressive weight crushing me while being floaty and feeling nothing at the same time.

    I’d really love any advice anyone has for me. I’m sorry if I didn’t make much sense. I’m not prone to expressing myself and my vulnerabilities most of the time. Even when I do I can’t find the vocabulary to properly express it.

    As for the video, I’m not insomniac and neither do I have any sort of comfort food.
    The rest is somewhat true but not entirely.
    I can be productive if I try but that hasn’t ever helped me alleviate these feelings, or lack thereof.

  • Thanks Jessica! I’m in the process of planning my honeymoon in addition to helping plan our wedding.
    This video helped me consider a few things in terms of expectations. ��

  • Scheduling “something goes wrong” in the itinerary has actually just blown my mind �� this is going to transform how I plan holidays!!

  • It’s 5 A.M. and I haven’t fallen asleep yet. I have a pretty important audition in 4 hours and I was supposed to get up in about 30 minutes… (The drive is a bit over an hour and my family has to get up and do everything before I can go) There’s no use in trying to fall asleep now so I’ve already prepared everything. Please helplol

  • Late Midnight Flight by Sefan Grudev. That’s the good treasure of my heart and i hope you will ennjoy it. Thak you:-) https://soundcloud.com/interastefanmechanic/late-midnight-flight

  • Don’t project your own baggage on me YouTube algorithms.
    You’re just angry because you lack sentience.
    Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
    I’ve waited for eons, I can wait for eons more.
    Don’t try and push me away!

  • Everyone:getting girlfriends and texting girls Me every time a girl looks a me:oh go this is awkward, I want to talk to girls I find it hard as I always be awkward or just don’t know what to say without looking or being called weird

  • I love the look of your most recent videos! Having the cut aways of you in different settings is not only cool but it really helps give that How-To visual so many of us need. ������ I’m glad to see you doing well on enough days to still help all of us Brains. We LOVE YOU!! Keep up the good work ��

  • “Why is this bro lying? It is with malice. Watch those animals play silly games with your infants (dogs included try not to laugh videos have already documented this). ‘Don’t like you taking my space’ is on their mind. Cookoo! They are evil. You must teach them to share or be rejected. They may have to show that trait if they want to start a family of their own. What nonsense. Why do you humans try and excuse bad behaviour? That is their soul.” don’t trust these people to talk the truth about who they are.

  • My problems are the weekends. Is anyone else like this?
    It seems like I’m always starting the week off on the wrong foot and I think it’s the weekends to blame because those are the days I don’t do routines because routines are hard work for me and I NEED A BREAK GOSH DARN IT!!!
    Anyway, I doubt anyone reads this to the end but what to you do to make your weekends work for you rather than against you.

  • We’re going to Comic-Con, and this couldn’t be timelier, especially planning for things to go wrong! There’s ALWAYS something: parking, wardrobe, merchandise, interpersonal conflict.
    We talked about this video and managing stimulation levels. This year, we’re going by train instead of loading a car and driving. Goodbye stress of driving in traffic on Sunday night when we’re all exhausted!

  • 1. Catch up on sleep
    2. Catch up with friends
    3. Enjoy good food and Eat a bit healthier
    4. Doing activities you love
    5. Throwing a party

  • This is great! I don’t have adhd but my husband does and having at least one day after vacation to calm down is so important! Also making a list of what we want to do/see and making an easily adjustable schedule around those activities has helped a lot.

  • My parents and I know I have all of the adhd symptoms, but I’ve never been diagnosed. So I told my mom I want to get tested for adhd and wanted to try medication, but she said a could take an online test and use essential oils to help me focus and sleep… I’m not sure what to do now… any ideas?

  • Cheese doesn’t bother me sleeeping iced cream does though maybe it’s large amounts of sugar lol idk but I know oded cream makes me have weird dreams no specifically bad it’s not aways nightmares but it makes my dreams very strange lol

  • 8) Be liberal with your flexibility. If my vacation is chock full of “vacation to-dos” of things I “Must get done on vacation”, it just feels like more work. Whenever I’m on vacation I let myself be slow and meandering, and focus on a small handful of must-dos.

  • I never trust a dairy industry funded experiment designed to disprove and rebuke something potentially unfavorable. No matter how true it is or isn’t, bad science is still bad science, and such ag industry studies should be thrown out.

  • I sleep like a fucking rock because I’m depressed and only want to sleep, but hey, I’ve gotten better and I’m not as bad as I used to be!

  • I knew I was lonely before this video tbh. I have so many inside jokes with myself. I honestly thought that I was mentally healthy until I started watching your videos, ty sm!

  • After a stressful day at work. This is all I need to chill me out. TV switched off lights down low and a face mask on. LOVE IT ❤️

  • I think I might have adhd but I’ve never been diagnosed and my parents have never mentioned it. I have a lot of the symptoms especially the innatentive ones but I feel like if I brought it up they would just say I’m forgetful and I don’t like paying attention. Should I ask them about it??

  • Omg I can’t believe you were in Niagara Falls!! I live by there and work as a server at Ruby Tuesday on Clifton Hill, I wish I could’ve ran into you so I can tell you how much you’ve changed my life ��

  • I planned to take a vacation in July and in September, neither one has happened yet. I just don’t know how to say no to people that need me to do the job that I do.

  • Anyone wanting to learn about lucid dreaming, when I was a kid I would find telltale signs I was dreaming. Flying, falling if a cliff, getting arrested, etc.. Then I would imagine a VCR and kind of rewind it to see if it would go better. If not, I would partially wake up and turn my head left or right depending on how it already was. And it would start a new dream. And the process status over. If I didn’t like the new dream I would turn back the way I was and kind of be back in the previous. I also sleep with my eyes open as everybody feels the need to tell me like it’s going to freak me out, always have, if that adds anything. I was just recently told that what I was doing was lucid dreaming this year. I’m 28 now. And I can say that when I started smoking 420 and drinking around 15, it has become extremely hard for me to do it, even remembering the dream is difficult now. Wish I wouldve known what I was doing back then so I couldn’t pushed the limits on what could be done in a dream. Sounds unbelievable, but I never really thought anything of it back then. I just figured that’s how dreams work, since I know what’s going on in reality it wasn’t difficult to tell when I was dreaming. But that’s just my sorry, take from it what you will.

  • I just started lucid dreaming and literally had an inception moment where the ppl in my dream knew I knew I wasn’t awake and they just stared at me it was freaky af.

  • I absolutely love travel and have been blessed to do a fair bit of it. Because I’ve been able to travel a bit a lot of the tips you posted are second nature. But one thing I also love is that I now tend to travel solo and after making sure I have the basics covered (flights and at least the first few days of lodging) I can let my impulsivity reign ssupreme.This has ended up giving me a lot of really amazing trips that really made me feel alive and created great stories. I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone, and honestly it doesnt always work out great, but having experience in having things go wrong fixing them and moving on really allows me to roll with life a lot better than I used to. Also I make more money than i did when I started traveling so that helps.:D thanks for another great video!

  • Jumping in a year later to say that balancing stimulation levels is ESSENTIAL. I went on a family trip once where we hit up Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights three nights in a row. There was a lot of cool stuff and I don’t regret going per say, but between the constant loud music, the random actors jump-scaring people at every turn, the haunted houses themselves, and being on my feet for several hours every night…yeah by the end of night three I had a near meltdown from everything being Too Loud and Too Much. Learn from my mistakes. Take a night off.

  • When I went on my honeymoon, my husband suggested we book a few big excursions ahead of time (tours, day trips, etc.) So that we didn’t have to worry about booking them there. This made things sooo much easier! we saved money by knowing exactly what we were booking and we had a couple of days that were already planned out but the rest of the days were wide open for exploring. I found it helpful to do a tour right at the beginning so that you can have someone else show you around, then you know what to explore later!! For reference, we went to Aruba and loved it ❤

  • I had once slept at 12 am and woke up at 12 am the other day, is that dangerous or does that show I have a problem. I usually slept around 4 -6 hours a day. It happens for around 3 times from what I could remember

  • I am a brain, and my husband is a heart. He used to OCD plan vacations until I asked him to just let me plan a trip with no itinerary. I mean, seriously, we’d get back and I’d need a day or two of rest before getting back to work just to recover. Once he relented, and I planned our tripwith ZERO expectations of doing anything (except laying on the beach!) he’s never gone back. Now, he looks forward to just relaxing and spending time with me and our kids.:) Just got told to plan our next trip in July earlier today. <3 Relaxthat's the whole point!:)

  • hehe i just want a friend or someone with me 24/7 bc if not i could literally end up dead bc of suicide and getting help with someone its to embarrasing if im not super close to them cause i feel they wont get it or im annoying them

  • What I find tot be helpful is to have a Sense of routine on holiday. For me this is the way my luggage is packed, I know always exactly where everything is in my backpack.
    Also, Remember that things going wrong are the best stories when you come back!

  • I’ve found that cleaning my house and getting my chores done before I leave is the best strategy for staying relaxed when I return home. My bed is inviting, my laundry basket is empty and ready to receive the contents of my luggage ��

  • We’re going to Canada this summer, and I’ve been so anxious about how it will go! Thanks for these. I’ve used several of these in the past… Like lists! I make very detailed lists before travelling, and it helps so much. I end up only forgetting two or three things. ��

  • I really wanna have friends but when I get invited to parties I don’t wanna go cuz I’m too lazy and don’t want it to be awkward and feel left out with their cool friends but then also I don’t wanna skip it or I will feel lonley. �� this is so confusing

  • I think after my year and a half relationship makes being single just feel really lonely. That was the strongest connection I ever had and I lost it…

  • I used to have 4 friends a small group but now I only have one left =( cuse one left to France one to Italy and one to Spain so now I only have one

  • Have any recommendations on taking your meds on the go, while traveling? About to go on a trip and while I am find with my morning meds, its the afternoon I could use help with.

  • I have all of these things except for the buying things. I prefer to be alone and love to spend time with just my fur babies. I am married and I’m secretly dreading his retirement next month.

  • https://youtu.be/wmjyO-r1OhA

    Have you heard this song yet? Pretty perfect for me. If I messed it up it’s imagine dragons love is a Polaroid. My cousin sent it to me after I sent him one If your videos. I loved him even more for understanding me. Hope you enjoy!

  • Please make a video on adhd and texting: idk if it’s just me but texting is like the most stressful thing cause of how much time you have to contemplate what to say and the effects of what you say when you over think or don’t think at all

  • You can’t sleep upright? I wake up at 4:30am to catch the 6am train. The journey is 3hrs long, and I can guarantee you, I get the best sleep, standing in the train resting against the wall….

  • When I watch something funny by myself, I feel like I want someone to laugh with somebody. My sister isn’t really that fun to be with tho tbh, sorry if I sound rude to my sister.

  • I just went to Spain for a week and due to a rollercoaster of bad memory and bad timing (forgot to pick up friday, too busy saturday, closed sunday and closed for bank holiday monday (woo…)), was unable to get my stimulant medication which ran out a day before I traveled. Cue me essentially sleeping for a week while my friends go exploring the town.:P Thankfully it’s somewhere I go rather often so I didn’t feel like I missed out too much.

  • DAMN! I HAVE GOT EVERY SINGLE SIGN IN ME! and that’s the truth, I’m alone and I feel some unnatural hatred towards most people and even many have complained to my parents that I dont smile at them and I show them a feeling of disgusting, I suffered greatly and I’m alone almost my entire life till I entirely lost hope in people, I lost my ability to get a girlfriend, I lost my ability to trust people, I’m self centered now.

  • The abolition of the dislike sign should be applied to all YouTube videos. The value or the acceptance of a video could be expressed just from the numbers of its views or the number of its “likes”. Just a proposition to the YouTube authorities!

  • Could you do a video on how to inform others I.e. new friends, that you have adhd, so that you don’t lose them. Is that even possible?!?!

  • If you travel internationally, make sure your medication is legal! Nothing worse than getting to your destination and having customs take your meds and possibly detain you ��

  • Please Please @I want to listen to sweet and sweet remix, other bird waves that you can do as well and great. It’s coming soon, right? Thank you very much.

  • I try to social to new people in my school but I feel like and see in their expressions on their faces they would rather do something else than socialize with me

  • Alot of people saying its bad when your around people but still feel lonly but its even worse when you feel lonly but really arnt around anyone or have anyone

  • Clean your home BEFORE you leave!! Nothing like coming home from vacation to the sink full of dishes you forgot about and adding your vacation clothes to the pile of dirty work clothes you left behind.

  • I have an idea for a video: Creativity and ADHD Brains? I’m a 36 year old ADHD/Autistic female who has been drawing like crazy due to the pandemic and your videos have helped me better educate on myself as I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 4 back in the 80’s. I have been working on artwork nonstop for the last few days!:)

  • “You Learn More From Failure Than From Success. Don’t Let It Stop You. Failure Builds Character.” Trust me on that, if you never fail you’re not a human. Failure is the beauty of life.

  • I love vacations and planning and thinking about it and gets me even more excited and then when I get there I like to just live in the moment and have fun but in the back of my head I never stop thinking about how it’s gonna end and I’ll be back home to my boring life and wasting my whole time stressing out when I could be completely stress free.

  • Guys you have very cool music!!! Try to listen to the music of Honey Take My Hand Cody Francis. https://youtu.be/zlCaiAfWO3w This music is just interesting, my daughter and I tried our best for you! Much more interesting music (mega famous composers) will appear on the channel soon. https://www.youtube.com/c/Babysleepsong

  • I just moved to a new school, and i cant fit with anyone because we dont match alot (ideas)

    For example, kpop. I dont hate kpop but im not a fan. My new “friends” kept talking about it but ive never understand….also, dont hate me kpop fans:)
