Boost Brainpower By Blending Creativity and Difficulty
Finding a creative outlet with the right amount of difficulty is a key component for success and happiness in life. This week, Dr. H speaks with Will Quie, a sophomore at Oberlin College in Ohio who also happens to be a phenomenal guitar player and fellow ADHDer. They talk about the importance of creativity and finding the “right level of difficult” to engage your brain, as well as the regular adjustments Will makes to give his neurodivergent brain what it needs.
Hear more about Will and his experience from his mom’s perspective in an episode we aired a few weeks ago: Surviving the Brilliance and Blues of ADHD.
