New Study Shows ADHD Symptoms May Be Eased By Playing in the Grass
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects between 4-5% of children, making it the most common chronic mental health problem among young children in the U.S. While a slew of medications have been released to remedy the effects of ADHD, a new study published in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being shows us there is a more natural alternative to pill popping: playing in the grass. The study shows that kids who regularly play in outdoor green spaces amongst the trees and grass have milder (ADHD) symptoms than those who play regularly indoors or in built outdoor environments.
