My Top ADHD-Friendly Tools of the Month
Personal favorites and suggestions from the ADHD Community
I’ve been gathering up a really nice set of tools for my ADHD toolbox lately - having received so many great recommendations from others within the community… I think it’s time to share a few of my faves that are making my life significantly easier/better. So, here we go…
My Top ADHD-Friendly Tools that are working for me (this month)
Rarely do productivity-related apps/systems work for me for very long - but I’ve recently discovered LlamaLife and I’m really digging it. I think I love it because it was so clearly designed by someone with ADHD (Marie Ng - who I was lucky enough to interview for my podcast by the way - that episode airs 5/9) LlamaLife is this nifty little side bar in my browser that helps me stay on track with tasks and includes a visual timer, fun sounds, and visual effects when you complete tasks. It’s currently only available in your browser - while they finish up their app. Check it out here
I know I’ve mentioned this before - but honestly, I can’t scream praises loud enough. I’m basically obsessed with my chair. I am so excited to sit down at this thing each day - it’s changed the way that I work. Check it out!
Anyone who’s been on a Zoom with me in that last 3-4 months can testify that I am ALWAYS playing with my Speks fidget toy. Speks is a must for my desk! I love them so much that I reached out to partner with them! Use code TRINA at checkout for 20% OFF! (Woot!!) Check out Speks!
Sunsama is the digital daily planner that I’ve been using for several months now - which is like a lifetime in ADHD. Ha! Sunsama is an all-in-one daily task manager that organizes all tasks, meetings, emails, and more in one place. Try it here!
Loop is hands-down the most recommended earplug within the ADHD Community - someone mentions Loop Earplugs to me nearly every day. If you struggle with over-stimulation, sleep, focus, parenting, etc — Loop may be a great solution for you.
Endel is a sound wellness app helping you focus, relax, and sleep and backed by neuroscience. Available on multiple platforms, it creates soundscapes that adapt to your heart rate, motion, time of the day, weather, and circadian rhythm.
Pretty neat technology, if you ask me. It’s been helping me focus while I’m working and also unwind at the end of the day. Try Endel for free for 1 month!
