    I think this may have something to do with left/right brain functioning and tricking one bit to focus on the repetitive task of walking and allow the other bit to re-focus uninterrupted on the more important task in hand. I’m remembering (vaguely, sorry) an example from the book ‘Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain’.

      It’s a little more complex than just left brain/ right brain, but absolutely the same basic idea.

      Thanks for the comment,

    Good morning!
    I am a psychiatrist, I had a similar idea when my 8 year old little patient began to lower their academic performance at the time that the teacher will not let her dance while performing their tasks, she was brilliant when she could dance while working, so I decided to try me using a stepwalker while studying, the result was spectacular, obviously we both have the diagnosis of ADHD , stimulants sometimes are not enough…..

    I am convinced that sustained movement as ADHD-walking (haha) brings just the extra bloodflow that stimulants alone cannot provide. I always take something to write on when I go outside to bike, as I find myself having less difficulty to think clearly when I’m warmed up! When I wasn’t yet diagnosed, I could sport 4 hours in a row just to clear my head and focus on my life. Hated the cooling-downs though, felt like getting dumber and scattered.
