Collected below are links to research-based articles that I find especially interesting and relevant.

ADD Executive Function and Intense Exercise

Play Time Helps Kids with ADD to Focus

When children with Attention Deficit Disorder are given a reason to move their bodies, good things can happen. Creativity may be increased. They are less bored. Increasing oxygen to the brain enhances their mind’s ability to focus. What’s the best part of this treatment? It’s child’s play!

Exercise Helps ADD Symptoms

Two recent studies examined the effect of exercise on the symptoms of ADD. They offer hope for children who need to improve the negative symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder.

What is your favorite way to exercise? Mine is pushing large carts from the parking lot into the warehouse where I have a part-time job. Would you believe that I push 10 at a time? There are many times during the year when people stop me and comment that the company should not have a woman my age pushing carts. But I love to push them! It is my favorite way to exercise! Pushing carts is aerobic, strength building, and has a useful function. How could it be better? Oh yes, it helps control my negative symptoms of ADD. Find your exercise passion and improve your symptoms to live your best life.
