Hyperfocus – the flipside of Distractibility!

Whether you have ADHD or not, you know how easy it is to be distracted. However, did you know that the flipside of distractibility is Hyperfocus? Hyperfocus, according to Dr. Hallowell, is akin to flow, that state of mind in which you become one with whatever you are doing, fused with the task, merged with the moment, to the extent you don’t even notice biological drives or needs. It is a state reminiscent of Yeats’s line, “How can we separate the dancer from the dance?” In hyperfocus the dancer becomes one with the dance.

Read more about”The Joys of Hyperfocus for those of us with ADHD in Dr. Hallowell’s article in ADDitude Magazine.
