Why does getting out doors help with ADD or ADHD? It’s a big help, up there with getting enough sleep and exercising. I don’t know why. Maybe it helps clear our mind for awhile, like sitting. My sitting works best when I do it outside (confession: I am a little behind on the sitting; stating my committment to pick it up). I like to look at the mountains and remind myself that they were there long before I came and will be there long after I’m gone – perspective.
Anyway, that’s the strategy – make the time to get out of doors; you’ll be more effective when you come back. It’s a great way to take a break.
