The Best Types of Exercises for ADHD, Depression & Anxiety

According to neuroscientist and author of "Biohack Your Brain" Kristen Willeumier, some types of exercise may help more than others when it comes to ADHD, depression and anxiety. Here's a quick summary of her suggestions, as well as a link to the recent article:

For ADHD: High-intensity interval training

For depression: Sustained aerobic activity for 30-45 minutes (e.g., running, swimming, biking, brisk walking)

For anxiety: Yoga or walks in nature

Although any safe exercise can be helpful to your brain, Willeumier points out that there are specific considerations that may provide additional benefits, such as getting sunlight, enjoying nature and boosting dopamine or serotonin.
