How can Opal help with your ADHD?

March 10, 2022

What is ADHD? Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects many people. People with ADHD may struggle to pay attention, manage impulsive behaviors (doing without considering the consequences), or be excessively active.

Inability to concentrate, being quickly distracted, hyperactivity, poor organizational abilities, and impulsiveness are some of the signs and symptoms. These symptoms differ from one individual to the next and tend to fluctuate as people become older.

Does ADHD have an impact on distraction?

ADHD sufferers are prone to being quickly sidetracked or also be hyperfocused. A person with ADHD can become so absorbed in something that they lose track of everything else going on around them.

When you should be concentrating on something, it's fairly common for your mind to stray. According to studies, we spend 47 % of our waking hours thinking about something other than what we're doing. A short attention span isn't usually causing concern, but it might be a sign of an underlying disease like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

ADHD and social media

What is it about the notification you hear from your phone when you receive an email, a tweet, or a status update that makes you feel so special? Why do you get so excited when you realize that the photo you posted this morning has already gotten 8 likes?

Researchers are starting to look into how social media affects our brains, especially in people with ADHD. When we receive notifications, the brain releases neurotransmitters linked to pleasure and a feeling of being more concentrated, according to researchers. Social media can cause daily activities and relationships to be disrupted for adults and teens with ADHD. Smartphone use among young individuals is estimated to reach about nine hours per day. There is rising evidence that people with ADHD are more prone to be depressed.
