Imagine having the ability to feel more motivated, attentive, interested, focused, and happy without needing a doctor’s note, a special diet, or weekly therapy. PlayDHD is about using the most effective non-medication intervention for managing adult ADHD. Play! By adopting a more playful mindset people with ADHD the world over can be more productive, have happier relationships, and have more FUN! in their lives.
Description

Play is the pathway to being an ADHD superstar!  Consider all of the famous people who have ADHD- Einstein, Adam Levine, Michael Phelps, Jim Carey, Malcomb Forbes and Shane Victorino, to name a few.  All known for being playful in their own way.   If you are an adult with ADHD, this book is your prescription to play. This book focuses on how developing a more playful mindset and habit of engaging in playful activities can actually help you to manage symptoms and excel with ADHD.  It’s likely that you were never encouraged to play to meet your potential, much less to have fun in an effort to be more creative, happy, energetic, and productive. After a lifetime of being urged to "stop goofing off" and to "take things more seriously," Dr. Milliken offers scientific evidence that  play is actually what you need to better manage your difficulties with attention. 

ADHD is a serious problem. But your approach to it doesn’t have to be.  PlayDHD: Permission to Play...A Prescription for Adults with ADHD is written for adults with ADHD as well as for those who just want to remember how to play more.   This is one book you will actually be able to say you read all the way through!  With scientific evidence, humorous anecdotes, playful activities, short passages, and color graphics, this book captures and holds the attention of even the most unfocused mind.  

"Our society underestimates the importance of play in improving our well-being, Kirsten Milliken in PlayDHD helps to rewrite our cultural norms to create a place for strategic uses of play." ~ Shawn Achor NYTimes bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage
