IDEAS FOR CONNECTION

In his book, 'Connect', psychiatrist and fellow ADHDer, Dr. Ned Hallowell, advises that connecting with others is an essential vitamin (Vitamin Connect) in building a healthy, successful life. It’s a scientific fact that we need one another (see article below).

 

One of his tips for dealing with anxiety is “never worry alone”. The solution to a problem can be found by talking it out with someone who "gets it". ADHDers need to get in touch with people going through similar struggles for mutual help and support. There will always be someone who can help and who understands.

Not only do we need to connect with others, we need to connect with nature. There have been quite a few studies showing the benefits of being in nature for kids with ADHD, but there is absolutely no reason why these benefits would not also extend to adult ADHDers.
