Exercise is a key recommendation from any healthcare provider.  Not only is consistent exercise good for your overall health, it can also relieve symptoms of ADHD. If you have at least 30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise, it can improve your mood, energy, brain clarity, and motivation.  Complex exercise is even better because it requires self-regulation and mindfulness.  Studies have shown that mindfulness techniques, can also help the ADHD mind become more present and less scattered.  Here are some examples of complex exercises to consider:

  3. 3.Rock climbing
  4. 4.Yoga
  5. 5.Gymnastics
