ADHD Focus Planner: The Best Adhd Life Planner for Notion

I'm pretty proud of how I designed this template, and I've received so much praise from the community that I truly believe I built a tool that works. (After purchasing the template, a customer sent me an email asking if they could tip me. True story.) So what’s is ADHD Focus Planner?

The ADHD Focus Planner is psychology-based and uses the frameworks of CBT and DBT that have been proven to help people with ADHD deal with their symptoms. It's a thoughtfully designed all-in-one system to help you take control of your life, manage ADHD symptoms, and thrive.

It's not just about being more productive; it's about finding balance, focus, and achieving your goals at your own pace.

The template is color-coded to facilitate navigation and is optimized for both dark and light modes. Additionally, I have recorded a full tutorial for each section of the template, so you can follow along if there is something that is unclear about using the template.

What's Included:

  • Minimalist Dashboard: Cut through distractions with a clean dashboard that provides easy access to your daily focus page, agenda, brain dump, and money tracking.
  • Get Things Done: Customize your to-do list based on your energy level and set up rewards to boost motivation. This includes a daily page designed to boost focus and avoid overwhelming, a weekly and monthly planner, and more.
  • Organize Your Stuff: Efficiently manage everything important in your life, from maintaining relationships to tracking finances. This includes a brain dump, a reading and watching list tracker, and a budget tracker.
  • Self-Care: Cultivate healthy habits, keep track of medications, practice gratitude, and prioritize self-care activities.
  • Home Mastery: Take control of household tasks like meal planning, cleaning, and pet care, all in one place.
  • Calming Tools: Overcome anxiety and stress with psychology-based tools, including a crisis management workbook and relaxing exercises.

Key Features:

  1. Focus and Distraction Management: Say goodbye to overwhelm and stress with a system that helps you stay focused and manage distractions effectively.
  2. Task and Appointment Tracking: Keep all your tasks, notes, appointments, and events in one place so you never forget what's important.
  3. Storytelling-Based Goal Setting: Transform your goals into inspiring journeys with a storytelling-based goal-setting system that boosts self-esteem and personal growth.

Incorporating psychology frameworks and over 30+ pages color-coded into six sections, the ADHD Life Planner is your comprehensive tool to help you manage your ADHD symptoms, enhance focus, and manifest your best life.

Say farewell to scattered thoughts and missed appointments – take control of your life today.

Frequenly Asked Question

Is Notion Good for ADHD?

Yes, Notion is good for ADHD. As a neurodivergent individual myself, I wholeheartedly endorse Notion as an invaluable tool for those living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).

There are two compelling reasons behind this endorsement: versatility and customization. Notion's versatility empowers users to tailor their planners to their precise requirements, recognizing that no two ADHD brains function alike. This digital planner provides the freedom to select and utilize only the functions that resonate with your unique needs. In essence, it operates on the same principle that makes bullet journals so effective for ADHD individuals – a personalized platform to offload the clutter from your mind, coupled with the ability to deeply personalize it with collections, stickers, colors, and pages, mirroring the flexibility of a traditional bullet journal.

Moreover, Notion is an all-in-one platform, capable of replacing a multitude of apps. You can consolidate your to-do lists, reading materials, project management, and calendars within Notion itself. This consolidation greatly enhances focus by eliminating the need to switch between multiple platforms.

If you are struggling with planning, focus, and staying on top of your goals, give Notion a try, and I promise you won't be disappointed.

Wrapping Up

Wrapping up, I truly believe that a well-designed ADHD template like this one can be a game-changer for those struggling with ADHD. With customizable templates and a user-friendly interface, Notion can help you streamline your workflow and manage tasks, deadlines, and even your own thoughts. I hope this article has helped you discover the power of Notion ADHD templates and inspired you to try them out for yourself.
