In ADHD According to Zoë, I shared some of the non-pharmaceutical ways I treat, or even capitalize on, my ADHD traits.
One way is through improvisational comedy classes. What better place to channel impulsivity, quick-thinking, and high energy into something creative?
As an undiagnosed 20-something, my first taste of improv was at a Theatresports group. Many moons and one ADHD diagnosis later, once again I’m taking improv classes.
I looked forward to being in a safe, non-judgmental place where unfiltered blurting was not just accepted, it was expected as part of the skill set. Little did I realize – now that I’m post-ADHD diagnosis, improv class can mean oh-so-much more.
