Dr. Hallowell's latest book, ADHD 2.0 is out today!

Ned's longtime writing partner, Dr. John Ratey, joins him for a conversation about the latest research they uncovered including how the brain's "default mode network" is especially dangerous for those with ADHD, why "ADHD" is a terrible term and we should call it "VAST" instead,  and how finding the right amount of difficult can help you stay engaged in a task. 

They also discuss the role the cerebellum plays in regulating our attention, how exercise can help with symptoms, why ADHDers are more susceptible to addiction in all forms, and the importance of connection. 

You can get a copy of ADHD 2.0 at DrHallowell.com or JohnRatey.com, or by clicking HERE. You can also find it wherever books are sold!

Kristin Seymour knows firsthand how tough it is to be productive when you have ADHD. Not only does she have ADHD, but Kristin is the mom of two ADHD teens, and she's also an ADHD specialist.

The advanced practice nurse returns to Distraction to share more of her "life hacks" along with some special advice for parents of ADHD kids.

As Ned puts it, "Kristin has the knack, the understanding and natural empathy of one who has been there, of one who really burns to make sure others do not suffer the way she did."
