Play Attention’s Mindfulness Apps Can Help Manage ADHD


In recent years, mindfulness has become a buzzword in the world of self-care. The practice of being fully present and aware of one's thoughts, feelings, and surroundings has been touted as a path to greater happiness, lower stress, and improved mental health.  

Several studies have looked at the effectiveness of mindfulness practices in managing ADHD symptoms in adults and children. One study published in the Journal of Attention Disorders found that adults with ADHD who participated in an eight-week mindfulness meditation program showed significant improvements in attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Another study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found that people with ADHD who received mindfulness-based cognitive therapy showed improvements in symptoms of depression and anxiety, as well as improvements in attention and executive functioning.  

Play Attention is a unique approach to improving mindfulness that combines neurotechnology and mindfulness training. Play Attention’s neurotechnology called BodyWave®, helps users increase their ability to stay present and aware in the moment because it allows individuals to monitor their own brain activity in real time on a computer screen, tablet, or cell phone. By doing so, they can learn to control certain aspects of their brain function, such as reducing activity in the amygdala (the part of the brain responsible for the fight-or-flight response) or increasing activity in the prefrontal cortex (which is involved in decision-making and impulse control).
