Did you mean Saffron or just… saffron? If Saffron, what is that!?

Sorry, I meant saffron.

I recently saw this too. Skeptical, but interested to hear about your experience. Saffron is expensive! I'd recommend buying at Costco - best price I've seen for a decent amount.

Wow interesting, thanks for sharing. I hope it gets studied more rigorously to see why it’s having that effect, since the study you linked also cites that saffron helps with sleep and it’s known that sleep helps ADHD symptoms. I myself have noticed more improvement from good sleep and exercise than the meds alone.
Unfortunately for me, my ADHD presents as primarily inattentive so I don’t know how much saffron would help if this is true: “Saffron is more effective for treating hyperactivity symptoms, while methylphenidate is more effective for inattention symptoms.” 🥲

Saffron? As in saffron the spice? Never knew it wouod be beneficial to adhd. You use one? Do you mind sharing the results?

I don’t but am thinking of trying it as my Dr doesn’t want me on stimulants bc of my BP.

Never heard of this, OP. Do you mind sharing more information. I've been on the hunt for a better symptom management for weeks.

Hi. I posted a link above, but if you google saffron adhd you’ll find lots of info on it including some scientific doc like the one I posted from NIH.

Also, someone posted today about Lions Mane (mushroom) helping them… something else to consider. I have heard great things about it but not specific to ADHD.

You could go for operations or business process analysis. You can use your analytical skills now. Good luck!

I’m burnt out from job hopping but I’ve never liked my current job and after a year in the role, I really want to get a new one. I’m finding it hard to get a new one as a creative and I’m running out of ideas of where else I should look. Thoughts?

Hi! I’m a young professional with less than 2 years experience, started a new job 1.5 months ago. I’m having quite some difficulties on balancing out my response time to tasks. While I act incredibly fast if not immediately with some, I sometimes take 1-2 weeks with couple of hours worthy ones. Sometimes I ignore, procrastinate or simply other more urgent things come up to increase the delay. Also I work with 3 managers in my team which doesn’t help with expectations nor guidance. Any tips pls?
