  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 20 min Daily
Advice & Tips: I started reading books on the train in the morning as a New Year's resolution. I found that spending 20 minutes focusing on one thing energized and focused me way more than reading a few news articles or playing games or browsing facebook. It has a positive impact on my mood, but I think the impact on my ADHD is much more profound. I have a much easier time diving into work and staying focused through the morning, and I notice a difference when I'm not able to read.
