Get Stuff Done! Neurodivergent Body Doubling Work Group

Your new productivity hack is here.

Having trouble paying attention to boring tasks for long enough to actually finish them? Even when we ADHDers and autistics are trying to focus on the things we have to do, it can be hard to keep motivated.

That’s why we created Neurodiverging’s Get Stuff Done group.

Join us for body doubling sessions over Zoom throughout the week! Let’s get stuff done together.

Our Get Stuff Done group uses the well-known (and evidence-based) intervention of body doubling to encourage you to show up, set a goal, and spend an hour getting it done. With group coaching support available and a group of other humans cheering you on, you’ll feel less overwhelmed and make clear forward progress on your goals.

How It Works

  1. Sign up for your first session FREE.

    Register for the session you want on the form below. We’ll send you a link to meet us in Zoom on the day you’ve chosen, and a reminder email the day before. After your free session, you can join the Patreon or pay $5/session. (Email Danielle for sliding scale & scholarship opportunities if needed.)

  2. Show up.

    Once you’ve signed up, we’ll be expecting to see you unless we hear otherwise from you. Bring the tasks you’ll be working on, a beverage to sip, and a commitment to sitting down and at least looking at the thing with us.

  3. Tell the group (or just your coach) what you’re working on.

    Saying it out loud to all of us will help motivate you to do it. Plus, we’ll all cheer you on as you make progress, and if you get stuck, you can ask the group for help in chat.

  4. Succeed.

    Committing the time and energy to invest in your priorities will help you feel more engaged, confident, and empowered in your day-to-day life. Get stuff done and get back on track today!

“The Get Stuff Done was super helpful!” – SM, Ohio

It’s pretty amazing what one person can get done in an hour with the right motivation and support. Here are some examples of what group members have already achieved this July:

  • “I sorted, folded, and put away three huge baskets of laundry that have been sitting for (maybe more than) a month.” – DL, Colorado
  • “I completely revamped my work calendar, set up a new system for my finances, and finally figured out how to put my mortgage on auto-pay, all in one session, yes!” – JX, California
  • “I used the time for journaling and ended up having a huge insight about why I’m stuck on my work project. I really appreciated the opportunity to talk with [Danielle] right there in the group because we were able to immediately make a plan to resolve the issues.” – CM, Connecticut

Neurodivergent Body Doubling

You may have heard of a body double before; this person can also be called an activity partner or a shadow. The activity partner is another person whom you have with you while you perform your task. Body doubles can be hugely helpful for neurodivergent folks who need more support with executive functioning.

There are a lot of different way a body double can help you, either actively or passively, through a difficult project. Here are some of the biggest advantages:

1) Having another person nearby can help you feel less isolated and less bored as you attempt a difficult task.

2) Knowing that someone else there with you can keep you more focused on what you’re meant to be doing, because you have a constant reminder in that person.

3) The body double represents your commitment to achieving your task. Moving off-task would involve justifying that decision to your double, which is often harder than justifying that decision to ourselves.

4) A body double is giving their time to you to help you with your task, so you will be more motivated to complete it.
