As someone with ADHD, being at your best requires—among other things—that you find ways to improve your attention, productivity, and mood. And you’ll know from past episodes that taking care of your brain is critical for all 3 of these, which is why we’re focusing on exercise for a couple of episodes.
Study after study shows that the brain works better with exercise.
But how much exercise and what kinds of exercise will help your brain the most?
In this episode, we review what science has to say about:
- exercise and anxiety
- exercise and depression
- and of course: exercise and ADHD
We not only cover which types of exercise help most with the ADHD brain, but exactly how to learn what works best for you.
And don’t worry: in our next episode we’ll talk about how to motivate yourself and actually get the exercise you need.
