A lot of people with ADHD struggle with focus. It can be tough to stay on task when your brain is constantly jumping from one thing to the next. But did you know that there may be a way to help ease some of that restless feeling? Some studies have shown that certain sound frequencies can help people with ADHD focus and concentrate better. Let's take a look at how this works.
How Sound Can Help people Focus
When you have ADHD, it can feel like your brain is running a marathon all day long. You have a Ferrari brain with bicycle brakes. You're constantly thinking about different things, and it can be tough to shut off those thoughts long enough to concentrate on what you're supposed to be doing. But some experts believe that certain sound frequencies can help ease that feeling of restlessness and help people with ADHD focus better.
A study published in 2012 found that people with ADHD who listened to music with a steady beat had less trouble completing tasks that required them to pay attention. The study participants who listened to the music showed significantly less activity in the parts of their brains associated with daydreaming and distraction than those who didn't listen to any music at all.
Another study from 2016 found that people with ADHD who listened to music with low-frequency tones had an easier time completing tasks that required sustained attention. Listening to music with low-frequency tones also improved the participants' working memory, which is essential for completing many everyday tasks.
If you're struggling to focus because of your ADHD, it might be worth giving sound a try. Certain frequencies have been shown to help ease the restless feeling that comes with ADHD and improve focus and concentration. So put on your headphones and give it a listen! It just might help you get through that project or essay you've been procrastinating on.
Check out what my friend uses to help her focus. WavWatch
This is what she said about how it helped her with her focus.
“I tried the WAVWatch today for the first time. I flipped it on to the ADHD setting. I was expecting to feel a difference in my body, but that’s not what happened. As I was working away on the computer all of a sudden I felt a calm come over me and a peaceful focus. Usually my mind is spouting off to do list items, other tasks that need to be done and random ideas at a pace of an auctioneer. I was able to finish my task without the mental battle that I usually deal with. My brain was able to focus in on the task I was doing! I am going to wear this watch every day!”
