    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    Procrastination. Disorganization. Distractibility. Millions of adults have long considered these the hallmarks of a lack of self-discipline. But for many, these and other problems in school, at work and in social relationships are actually symptoms of an inborn neurological problem: ADD, or Attention Deficit Disorder.

    Seit 40 000 Jahren haben sich unser Körper und Gehirn kaum, unsere Lebensweise durch die Zivilisation jedoch dramatisch verändert. Das tut uns nicht gut. Krankheiten wie Diabetes, Stress oder Burnout nehmen zu. Wir leiden an einer Naturdefizit-Störung, sagt der renommierte Psychiater und Mediziner John Ratey. "Raus in die Wildnis! Weniger ist mehr!", lautet daher sein Rat. Schalten Sie Fernseher und Smartphone aus, bewegen Sie sich im Grünen. Anhand neuester Wissenschaftserkenntnisse zeigen Ratey und Co-Autor Manning, wie Aufenthalte in der Natur, mehr Schlaf, gezielte Ernährung und Achtsamkeit unser Wohlbefinden und die Gesundheit steigern.
