In previous posts we focused on the importance of physical activity in battling the symptoms of ADD/ADHD. We saw that exercise can make a significant contribution to improvements in general and mental health. Studies have also shown that physically fit people find it easier to pay attention and focus on difficult tasks. This is a skill that is obviously of immense importance to those dealing with ADD/ADHD.
Most people would respond to all of this by saying that they are totally convinced of the theoretical importance of physical activity â€“ the problem is to translate this theoretical understanding into action! The purpose of this article will be to help you (and your children) to do just that!
