Exercise Can Improve ADHD

Sometimes the best medicine is a little fresh air…

Or at least that’s what new research on ADHD says.

A growing body of research suggests that exercising outside can have a positive effect on kids with ADHD.

Said researcher Dr. David L. Katz:

“When my colleagues and I conducted a study of our school-based physical activity program, ABC for Fitness, one of the findings was a 33% reduction in medication use for ADHD! I have long said that rambunctiousness in kids is normal and should be treated with recess, not Ritalin.”

Doctors recommend that kids be active outside at least twice a week to help out with ADHD.

If your kid has ADHD, kick them out of the house a few times a week and get them moving!
