ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a serious problem, and it’s on the rise, for a variety of reasons. Both adults and children suffer from it. In fact, in the USA currently “one of six 11-year-old white boys with medical insurance currently take a stimulant drug at least during the school week” ((Lawrence Diller, M.D., The United States of Adderall))
Many of the medications used to treat symptoms of ADHD can lead to serious side effects, among them:
- aggressive behavior
- psychotic symptoms
- increased blood pressure
- manic symptoms
But on the other hand, just doing nothing and being constantly distracted and unable to focus isn’t acceptable either.
So what to do?
While there are many corporations and experts that will promise you an instant and easy cure for ADHD, the best way to proceed seems to be a long-term approach to overcoming ADHD, without having to rely on medication.
Hypnosis can be one of the most effective ways to train your mind for focus. One of the reasons for this is that when you listen to a ADHD hypnosis download, your mind is getting into a kind of day-dreamish state. And as your thoughts begin to wander, your mind is shutting out sounds in your immediate environment and other distractions.
Now usually these kind of day-dreams are one of the problems for people with ADHD – but you can in fact turn them into your advantage, because they are in effect highly focused states of mind. What’s missing is your ability to utilize them purposefully, instead of just following them mindlessly.
And this is where hypnosis is extremely effective. Because your subconscious mind will learn to gain better control over what your mind does and does not, where your attention goes and doesn’t go, what it notices and what it shuts out of your conscious awareness.
And that allows you to become deeply engaged in any kind of mental activity, and stay so.
But there’s no need to believe this – simply try it out for yourself, at no risk whatsoever, and decide what it does for you. You’ll probably be surprised how easy it is to be totally focused and mentally alert, with your mind on course like a ship in the hands of an able captain.
