Get outdoors —- ADD Tip o the Day 308

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.

Thanks to everyone who wrote in support after my review blog.  Did it sound like I was feeling sorry for myself?  I was.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
