ADHD & Music

music can help us focus

Studies show that playing brown noise, lo-fi or classical music helps those with ADHD get in the zone easier.

There are even specific playlists made for those with ADHD:

music can provide structure

Have you ever used playlists to structure your daily routines? Timing actions with songs can be fun! 😊

Create a playlist and assign activities to each song. 

music can help with emotions

Have you ever noticed how certain songs just seem to match how you’re feeling? If you’re sad, a sad song might make you feel understood and help you release the emotion. If you’re happy, an upbeat tune can boost your mood even more. A focus playlist can do just that – help you get in the zone. 😊

Music helps with boredom

Have you ever listened to a song and felt like you were swept away by a story or melody? That’s because music has a way of sparking  imagination. It can give us new ideas or make us see things from a different perspective. It can be a good companion to boring daily chores. 😄

we can use music for stimming

We often use music for stimming, without even knowing it – playing the same song over and over again for hours! 😁 Stimming can help regulate emotions, reduce stress, and increase focus.

a way to express yourself

Many ADHD’ers are very creative and driven towards self-expression. Music can be a great way to do that! Many artists have written songs about what it’s like to live with ADHD.
