Can Exercise Be Used to Help an Adult With ADHD Control Symptoms?

It can – and it doesn’t have to be as strenuous as you may think.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that “regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. “Even 60 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity is good for you,” the CDC notes. From weight management and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease to potentially warding off certain cancers and improving balance, health officials maintain that exercise provides many benefits.
