Practical tips for navigating daily life with low energy, executive function challenges, and disabilities

About Us

About this site

Hello and welcome to Low Spoon Living! I’m Suzanne, the founder of this space, a place for those who feel like everyday life and everyday tasks can be a bit of a battle.

This site was born out of a lifelong struggle with what people would term as “simple tasks”, tasks that seemed effortless and manageable for others but often were almost impossible for me. For this reason I (and often others) labeled me as lazy, unmotivated or unwilling to put in the effort. I knew this wasn’t the case but was unable to understand why simple things were often so difficult.

Through random chance one day I came across the concept of executive dysfunction and realized that what I was experiencing wasn’t laziness but rather a deeper, more complex issue. Understanding that my struggles were not due to a lack of effort but rather a cognitive hurdle changed everything. Once I stopped beating myself up and decided to cooperate with the way my brain worked and started concentrating on my strengths rather than my failings I found that things slowly started to improve. Sometimes it was just a simple matter of doing things in a different way, a way that made sense to me (even if it didn’t always make sense to others).

Low Spoon Living was born from a desire to create a space where understanding, practical advice, and community support can be found for people who are also struggling. Here, I try to combine personal experiences with researched, science backed insights as well as practical tips. My mission is to help others who are on a similar path, providing tools and understanding that transform ‘setbacks’ into stepping stones towards a more manageable and fulfilling life.
