Welcome Fall with Renewed Attention
Friends of the Center,
Cool evening breezes and earlier sunsets can mean only one thing: Autumn is quickly approaching, and with it comes a new school season.
Fall is an exciting time for the Center. It’s a time when we can do what we love most – help those who have trouble concentrating. We offer ADHD testing and treatment, individual therapy, and now innovative neurofeedback training.
In this newsletter, we offer some tips to improve your concentration and feature a new referral bonus for our latest offering.
Students can start the school year right by getting tested for ADHD – and getting the help you need. Parents, support your student by arranging for an assessment. Not a student or a parent? September is the perfect time to prepare yourself to finish 2015 with flair.
You can always contact me or call DCNE (202-998-ADHD (2343)) to discuss our services.
5 ways to improve your concentration
- Sleep – Are you getting enough? Make sure you’re logging 7–8 hours of ZZZs per night. Neurofeedback can drastically improve your sleeping.
- Stress – Stress from school, family, friends, or work can affect your ability to concentrate. Practice deep breathing exercises, make time for something you enjoy, or see a DCNE therapist to lower your stress levels.
- Exercise – Sometimes excess energy can manifest as nervousness and an inability to concentrate. Take an extra walk this week while the weather still allows!
- Screens – Turn off the computer, TV, and iPhone at least one hour before you plan to hit the hay. It’ll help you sleep better and set you up for daytime success.
- Diet – It can’t be said enough: Eat your greens. A balanced diet featuring plenty of fruits and vegetables will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to stay alert and on task.
