How to manage boredom in ADHD
Individuals with ADHD often experience frustrating levels of boredom as part of their condition. Boredom in ADHD can be explained by the inadequate dispersion or circulation of dopamine in the brain which can result in less satisfaction being experienced with ordinary tasks hence the frequent search for novel & stimulating activities (Letitia Sweitzer. M.Ed. ADDitude Magazine).
As boredom also plays a significant role in three main ADHD symptom areas of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity it can have a debilitating impact on work & personal lives e.g. ability to complete non-stimulating tasks at work and engaging in high-risk behaviours.
