This is great…used a lot of the same techniques with myself and my daughter that Dave has used. We now use a combination of medications, diet, oils, etc, but I am totally having her listen to this when I get home to see if this can be implemented to help her even more.
More Brain Hacks PLEASE!!! This guy is awesome! Would love to hear more advice from him!!
One of my favorite podcasts so far – I like that Peter made great questions. Those are the questions associated with the info that I always wanted to know! I also love that the podcast is conversational and that podcast is in fast pace. Peter addresses the key points. Easy to understand. Lots of techniques I can learn.
Dave is inspiring – It’s very inspiring to know that a person like Dave who has ADD is a Guinness World Record Holder for Memory. I found his advice very useful such as looking up instead of looking down during the exam, working 6-7 mins and taking 6-7 mins breaks, and having a positive thought on the ADD diagnosis. Love them all. I’m training myself to pick up these techniques on daily basis.
