How do you ‘unplug’? Parents and kids alike rarely disconnect after leaving the office or school, staying attached to cell phones and retreating home to TV, computers, and other electronics. Especially for those with ADD/ADHD, how do these habits impact health? Find out!


Can You Nurture Nature & Improve Symptoms?

How time outside can help ease ADD/ADHD

How this fatty acid helps relieve symptoms and improve health

Modern living has created a new paradox- as we gain more virtual connectivity, we're significantly losing real-time connections.

A national study from the Kaiser Family Foundation cited that the average American 8 to 18-year-old spends seven and a half hours a day using a smart phone, computer, television, or other electronic gadget.

Too Much Technology?

It doesn't seem surprising that reports of ADD/ADHD are continually on the rise, with children spending less time than ever getting physical exercise, a means of naturally expending energy.

Almost half of elementary schools have reportedly cut recess from the curriculum, resulting in kids bottling up excess energy at home and school- often leading to undue methods of treatment.

For children suffering from ADD/ADHD, excess energy usually results in an aggravation of symptoms and therefore more difficulty in both academic and personal life.

In addition, constant connectivity can disrupt healthy sleep patterns, which can lead to fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and irritability, among other problems. Over time, the effects of lost sleep can lead to anxiety and depression, which can make simple problem solving a challenge and exaggerate daily stressors.

The Benefits of Unplugging


Green Activity Spotlight: Gardening

Adults and children alike can benefit from ' playing in the dirt'!

Besides contributing to regular physical activity, gardening:

  • Builds responsibility from maintaining routine care
  • Provides outlet for stress
  • Promotes patience, as results are not immediate
  • Creates feelings of accomplishment and pride
  • Allows for bonding time if enjoyed with company

With the start of spring and warmer weather, it's easy to enjoy being active and outdoors, which can provide positive psychological and physiological effects for all ages- and doesn't require much time!

Just half an hour of activity for ADD/ADHD children has been shown to provide:

  • Better academic performance
  • Increased ability to focus and stay on task
  • Improved overall behavior
  • Less fidgeting

Further, a study by the Human-Environment Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois found natural surroundings particularly beneficial in improving concentration and overall functioning in ADD/ADHD children.

In addition, playing with peers, participating in sports, or partaking in other outdoor activities helps build social skills, ease stress, and foster creativity all positive effects, easily attained naturally!

A Holistic Approach

It's important to help your child find a reasonable balance between work and play, in addition to real time interaction with peers and nature. Taking a holistic approach to systemic health by exercising regularly, eating healthy meals, and getting sufficient sleep will also maintain brain health and vitality, allowing it to function at peak performance for efficient concentration, focus and memory.

Add some time outdoors into the mix, and you may be amazed at the results!
