Exercise fires up our (ADHD) brains like nature’s drug. It is one of the basic ways we manage our ADHD and related challenges such as Emotional Regulation and Depression.
The increased dopamine produced through exercise can help improve attention and focus in people with challenges related to ADHD. Exercise also produces endorphins to make you feel great – which helps to regulate mood and combat depression.
Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body,
it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.

However, despite knowing the benefits, I am what can easily be referred to as a ‘reluctant’ exerciser. I have never met a burpie I liked. When working out with others, my frequent sarcastic jokes are thinly disguised complaints.
Confession: Sometimes…*GASP*….I don’t even feel like walking our dog Frida.
Whole Life Fitness Manifesto
This is the thing: Dai is pretty much all-around AWE-SOME! I have met him and his wife Christie in person – as well as follow them across social media – and their energy and genuine smiles are infectious! You’ll know what I mean when you watch one of their LIVE videos!
They seem like they really do have the healthy and happy thing goin’ on. They incorporate fitness into their lifestyle, including the whole family in their wellness plan.
I want that.
Dai’s program is exactly the kind of simple change to my Fitness routine that I am looking to add to my Back to Basics Plan. The program asks you to commit just 30 minutes a day to yourself and is FREE!
In fact, I am joining the WLFM FREE 28 day NEW YEAR BEST YOU CHALLENGE that just began. The #NewYearBestYou challenge is being fuelled by BULLETPROOF which means anyone who joins will receive Dai’s book FREE as well. Thanks BP360!
Just CLICK images to read more about it + Sign up to join me and the rest of the tribe. I am hoping they will overlook my whining until I can make it a habit.

Coach Moose is gifting one lucky mADDworld reader an autographed copy of his book Whole Life Fitness Manifesto!!
I downloaded Dai’s book immediately – Hello, FREE! – but I still ordered myself an additional hard copy. I like a book to highlight stuff, cram into my Hermione purse, scribble notes in the margins… Maybe I’ll spill a little coffee on it and really make it feel at home with all my faves in my well loved library.
ENTER BELOW to win your very own signed copy!
(Contest open until February 6th: WLFM #NewYearBestYou 28 Day Challenge end date.)
