2 Terrific Tools to Boost ADHD Focus
Let’s continue our look at controlling ADHD distractions with a look at two terrific tools to boost ADHD focus. Audio tracks I use daily to be more productive and help me get started on tasks or projects. (Thank you, Angela! She’s an ADHD Success reader who nudged me to share the Immrama link again.)
In last week’s ADHD Success you learned a core step for stopping ADHD distractions You’ll find these ADHD focusing tools are a fine companion.
I’m happy to share! These audio tracks are my ADHD productivity secret. They shift your brainwaves allowing you to avoid distractions, be more creative, and shift your mood.
I know it sounds woo-woo, but I’ve been using brainwave audios myself for years with great results. In fact, I’m playing Immrama Boost Creativity Audio right now to help me write this blog post. I recommend them to many clients, too.
There are two audios I use and recommend. I’ve tried others; these are the best I’ve found to help people with ADHD focus.
Tools To Boost ADHD Focus
Immrama Institute Focus Audio
The Immrama Institute Focus Audio is my old standby. The minute I struggle with starting a task I turn on my Focus Audio. (I just checked my iTunes and I first downloaded it in 2009.) I turn them on when I need to stop ADHD distractions, too.
You can read more about how the brainwave technology helps ADHD at the Immrama link above. It’s magic if you ask me!
The audio comes as either an mp3 download or a CD. You have two options for sound – Ocean Waves or Gentle Rain. I prefer the gentle rain sound. It’s a quiet white noise which works for me since I’m very sensitive to music and noise.
You can choose from three tracks depending on what you’re trying to get done. Increase creativity, provide clarity while reading, boost focus while working.
I listen to the Creativity Track when I’m writing a blog post or designing an ADHD Success Club module. The Focus While Working gets me going with boring, administrative tasks like paying bills or planning.
Many clients have gotten the Immrama Focus Audios over the years. Most, who remember to use it, like it. A few say it’s distracting. Playing it on a low volume usually solves that problem.
I have the Focus Audios on their own playlist on my phone and in iTunes on my computer. I listen without earbuds and it works just fine.
Brain Shift Radio
Brain Shift Radio is a snazzy focusing tool I discovered a couple of years ago. It, too, is a go to ADHD focus tool I use while working at my desk. In fact, it was originally created for people with ADHD.
I rely on the variety of tracks available depending on what support I need for my ADHD: focus, energy, meditation, sleep, brain boost, mood uplift. If I’m tired or crabby (imagine that) it helps get me back to positive and perky.
Brain Shift is a web based application with a mobile app for the Android. You can test it with a 30-day free trial period before signing up for the annual subscription just to make sure it works.
Brain Shift Radio is rhythmic music you play VERY quietly in the background. It has to be so low you can hardly hear it. That makes it a great choice if you share an office. Also, no earphones are necessary. My only complaint is at first it was hard to figure out how the interface works. But I soon got the hang of it.
Full Disclosure: if you buy through these links I get a small commission to help support the blog and website. Please know I would NEVER recommend something to you that I didn’t fully believe in and use myself!
Do you wrestle to control ADHD distractions? Then I encourage you to take a look at my favorite tools to boost ADHD focus. Make struggling to get started and stay productive a thing of the past!
