Green Time and Attention Deficit Disorder
Greetings from the Land of OZ!
Driving my son back to college after the Easter weekend, I was struck by how green the fields of Kansas have gotten after just a few weeks. In some fields there was green as far as the eye can see.
How can you improve your child's concentration and impulsivity? Did you know that active play can help improve the symptoms of ADD? Surprisingly, it also matters where the child plays. Large green spaces offer help for kids with ADD/ADHD. Playing in an open green space improves impulsivity and inattention, according to recent research. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana suggest that "green time," that time spent playing in green open spaces, may help reduce the negative symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder.
