It's interesting, because I'm never NOT listening to music. I've been officially diagnosed with ADHD Combined-type and it helps me actually sit still and concentrate when I need to things like homework or type a paper up. It takes just enough of my brain power to listen, and it calms what's leftover down enough for me to actually get what I'm doing, well, done.
