Because of my lack of energy, I often passed up opportunities to do activities with my friends, and I was terrified to pursue academics because they were simply too mentally demanding. I did not feel like a kid, I felt like a failure.
As an adult, I struggled so hard to focus for even a short amount of time on what someone was saying. Receiving simple instructions from my boss was like being given a puzzle to solve. And my energy level would drop off almost as soon as I began work because of the cognitive stress of the tasks I was doing.
Play Attention has exceeded my expectations. When I first began Play Attention, I would become exhausted after playing a session. It was such a drain that I began to play before going to bed so I could sleep afterward. But it's becoming less and less of a drain. It actually helps me focus afterwards. It is like practicing mindfulness which I have also found to be very helpful for my ADD brain.
After using Play Attention for a couple of months, I noticed measurable improvements in my energy and the length of time I could focus. I felt confident enough to lead a group of high school freshmen at Winter Camp. And now, just four months later, I continue to see encouraging improvements!
At work I am now able to ignore background noises like music or loud voices and focus on my clients. And I can maintain that level of focus for much longer periods of time. Not only that, but I am enrolled at a university in pursuit of a Bachelor’s degree that I had given up hope that I could attain.
Play Attention has given me the confidence that I need to live productively and to not only survive but to thrive in a challenging work environment.
Lastly, I want to give credit to Play Attention support. Mike, my Play Attention support person, has gone above and beyond my expectations. He’s always available to guide me through the Play Attention learning process.
Give Play Attention a try. You won’t regret it!
