Diet can have a significant impact on someone with ADHD. Try to consume a varied diet rich in fruit and vegetables and good sources of protein. Eating a good well-balanced diet, full of brain-healthy foods is especially important in times of heightened stress and anxiety. However, it can be difficult to avoid sugary food and excessive caffeine if you are spending more time than usual at home. Establishing a good daily routine starting with a good breakfast can help you to manage your diet effectively.
The brain of someone with ADHD really benefits from the patterns that a steady, consistent routine provides. Lockdown causes changes that the brain might find hard to process, especially if your working pattern or location alters. Whether you are working or not, a daily timetable will help you to achieve consistency. Just don’t put too much pressure on yourself and make sure you take sufficient time for breaks, food and refreshments.
