With ADD ADHD, we are prone to addictions.
I struggle with addictions. I have two chess games and a poker game on my iPhone. I manage to control myself and only use them when I’m on a trip or have dead time. There are better ways to use my time and I’m afraid of getting addicted to them. I’ve been addicted to games in the past.
But I have a new addiction, and I love it.
If you don’t know about Brainscape, it’s an app of flashcards in a wide variety of subjects. The cards are good and appropriate, and the program is excellent. It’s well designed based on learning theory and principles.
So far, I’ve downloaded and used programs on Spanish, music theory, nuclear physics, English vocabulary, and religions, among others. When I have those little moments of nothing particular to do, these are great. The problem is, once I get on it, it’s hard to get off. But I don’t consider this a waste of time.
Check it out. I think you’ll love it too.
Question O the Day:
What you may ask, does this have to do with ADD ADHD?
Answer O the Day:
I don’t know, maybe nothing much. But then, we are prone to addictions and to wasting time. And with our interest in so many things, it’s easy for us to get stuck in unproductive activities. This one is at least somewhat productive.
