Eachday uses data and neuroscience to help you better understand your mind, visualize time, and craft routines that reduce the cognitive burden of completing day-to-day activities. Our library of expert tips, techniques and learning strategies solve the daily "ADHD Moments" people experience in real-time by addressing the executive function failures that cause ADHD symptoms to occur.
“Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing he can’t afford to lose”
- Thomas Edison
Our ADHD brains have two switches: now and not now. When it comes to managing time we struggle with planning, prioritizing, motivation, and organization which makes it difficult to allocate time and effort appropriately. Eachday makes it effortless and easy to focus on the now by leveraging the innate ADHD brain’s skill of visualizing tasks and time in an artistically beautiful app. It inspires you to achieve your goals and eliminates uncertainty from your day.

“Champions don’t do extraordinary things. They do ordinary things, but they do them without thinking . . . They follow the habits they’ve learned”
- Charles Duhigg
Studies suggest that difficulties with divided attention are a prominent feature of ADHD. Divided attention occurs when you are driving and listening to the radio, talking on the phone and completing paperwork, balancing on a ladder while painting. Using the Routine feature on the Eachday app turns tasks into habits to reduce the cognitive load of task initiation, which hampers task completion. Neuroscience has shown that multitasking is inefficient for anyone, especially a person with ADHD. By focusing on task completion you can hit your goals without becoming overwhelmed by starting multiple things at once.

Eachday's executive function techniques can help improve working memory, a deficit that contributes to many behavioral ADHD symptoms. With ADHD our minds are firing through hundreds of thoughts a minute-- there is so much to do and so many things competing for our time and attention! The key to success is getting the timing right and using reminders to refocus your attention after being distracted. Through Eachday your phone is transformed to the best accountability tool that provides reminders based on your schedule.

Ever feel like it’s hard to have a conversation about your ADHD with a doctor or loved one? How people understand your ADHD starts with you and how you interact with Eachday. Eachday serves as a Digital Memory of how ADHD manifests itself in your daily life by tracking your ability to adhere to scheduled routines, how your executive functions are impacted by ADHD and how you self-report symptoms. All this combines to create your “ADHD Profile” a personalized view into your mind that you can share with loved ones, clinicians or keep to yourself. The choice is yours.

Nearly all patients diagnosed with ADHD are prescribed medication for their disorder, but rarely do individuals get the opportunity to learn self-management strategies or have the necessary tools to become fully effective with ADHD. As a result, many have difficulty maintaining jobs, relationships, and honestly, their life. They are left angry and frustrated knowing that they have the potential for so much more. There are many successful people with ADHD, but it takes them years to develop the right strategies for them to be successful. We’re taking the guesswork out of that process so that everyone with ADHD can reach their full potential.
Nearly all ADHD treatment recommendations consist of medication treatment only because non-medication strategies and skill sets are often overlooked, unavailable, or financially inaccessible. These non-medication strategies and skills are solutions to the actual problems that cause your ADHD to block your progress.
If you Google non-medication strategies to manage ADHD, there are literally 120 million results that pop up. It is very difficult to determine the ones that work and the ones that may be harmful. Eachday’s Neurodiverse team, which has years of experience managing and mastering ADHD, has created a method to conquer your Executive Function (EF) failures and manage your time more effectively, all in an engaging and entertaining app.
The sad truth is that there are only a few specialized clinics that provide scientifically-validated non-medication ADHD treatment and their help costs around $400/hr. Eachday is bringing those techniques to you digitally for a fraction of the price.
We want to change the stigma around ADHD by providing people with a skillset that can be applied to your life regardless of the context or environment. By focusing on the cognitive processes that are disrupted by ADHD, we help fix the root causes to your ADHD problems so that you can better achieve your goals.
No. Eachday will help you better understand and manage your ADHD on a daily basis. You can then use that knowledge to have a more productive conversation with your doctor, spouse, parent or therapist. Or just keep it to yourself, this tool is built for you.
Since 1955 with the introduction of Ritalin, stimulant medication has been a primary form of treatment for ADHD. According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the CDC, up to 35% of pediatric patients do not respond to stimulant ADHD medications.
According to a Consumer Reports survey:
- Pediatric patients report side effects 84% of the time for Amphetamine medications and 81% of the time for Methylphenidate medications
- 35% of consumers taking ADHD meds stopped because of side effects (decreased appetite, sleep problems, weight loss, irritability, upset stomach)
- Only 41% of parents were highly satisfied with their child’s ADHD medication treatment
- 52% of parents said they would have their child take ADHD meds if they had to do it over again
- 44% of parents agreed strongly that they wished there was another way to help their child besides medication
- 32% of parents agreed strongly that they worried about side effects of ADHD medications
Eachday is meant to complement existing treatments prescribed by your doctor.
No. Eachday is intended for people ages 13+ who have been diagnosed with ADHD, but anyone can download Eachday from the App Store.
We've had conversations with United Healthcare and Optum with the intention of eventually having insurance coverage. Fundamentally, we believe in providing Eachday at an affordable price so that people without insurance can also use it.
