Get Outside this Summer and Keep Your ADHD Brain in Focus

Summer is here and it’s a great time to switch up your exercise routine. There are tons of ways to have fun in the sun while getting some important exercise.

Did you know that exercise is even more important when you have ADHD? Getting your heart and lungs pumping can mean the difference between a calm, focused mind and a harried, inattentive self. Exercise can help reduce some of the symptoms of ADHD and help stave off anxiety and depression.  It even sparks new brain growth!

To get the maximum benefit from summer activities, 30 minutes of aerobic exercise 3 or 4 times a week will do the trick.

It can be hard to start an exercise program, and even more difficult to make it a long-term habit. So while summer is a good time to mix it up with outdoor movement, an ADHD coach can help you set achievable exercise goals for yourself, stay on track, and problem solve when you aren’t able to meet your goals.
