Exercise Helps Children with ADHD

Have you heard?  Exercise can help children with ADHD.

As many of you know, I have ADD and created Fitness for Health because I wanted to help children faced with the same challenges and assist them in achieving their maximize potential via physical fitness.
I wrote about “Exercise as Medicine for ADD and ADHD” in my blog on January 29, 2014.  And, a study published on Tuesday in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology confirms that exercise can treat the symptoms of ADHD.

The study found, “regular, half-hour sessions of aerobic activity before school helped young children with symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder become more attentive and less moody.”  Other research found that a single bout of exercise improved students’ attentions and academic success.
“This is the first large-scale demonstration of improvements in ADHD symptoms from aerobic physical activity using a randomized control trial methodology,” said Betsy Hoza, lead author of the study and professor of psychological science at the University of Vermont.  “This shows promise as a new avenue of treatment for ADHD but more work needs to be done before we know for sure if it really is.”

If you or a loved one have ADD or ADHD, the daily demands of school, work and family can seem overwhelming. But, by using exercise as a “medicine,” you can become more organized, better able to concentrate and use your newfound focus to tackle new challenges.
