Jack Cheng on “Body Doubling”

Folks in ADHD circles talk about body doubling, which is like coworking with a wider net. You can overcome resistance more easily, the thought goes, when there’s someone else doing it at the same time. Or even if there’s someone else merely in the same space.

I don’t believe I have ADHD but if I’m talking to you on the phone for more than five minutes, I’m also likely sweeping the floor or cleaning the kitchen.
