ADHD affects the basics of a healthy lifestyle: getting enough sleep, eating healthily, maintaining an exercise regimen, managing stress, and following through with treatment for other medical conditions. In the short term, sub-optimal lifestyle habits may cause people with poorly managed ADHD to struggle even more with everyday demands. New research also suggests that, in the long-term, poorly managed ADHD decreases life expectancy.

In this webinar, we will talk about how to create a healthier lifestyle that will benefit you today and as you age. Treating your ADHD makes it easier to live a healthier lifestyle, and living a healthier lifestyle makes it easier to manage your ADHD. The trick is getting started.
