Sleep Struggles & ADHD
How are they connected?
Let’s talk about SLEEP, shall we? 😴 I want to start with a quick poll - because man, I love a poll…
Oftentimes, ADHDers tend to struggle with sleep in a few different ways:
Difficulty falling asleep
Delayed Sleep - Onset Insomnia
Unable to maintain regular sleep routine
So, what’s the connection here??
Many researchers have linked ADHD to a higher likelihood of Circadian Rhythm Disorders. While they are separate conditions, they can sometimes coexist or have overlapping symptoms. CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) has put together a short but helpful PDF about ADHD and sleep disorders - you can find that HERE.
If you have ADHD and you've often struggled with sleep, you’ll want to tune in to this week's podcast episode featuring Sleep Expert & Behavior Coach, Nicole Shallow. Join us as we talk all about this along with some tips to help you get a better night's rest.
Something that I’m enjoying recently is the Endel app at bedtime. Endel creates personalized, functional soundscapes to help people focus, relax, and sleep. They take inputs from your movement, time of day, weather, heart rate, location, and other factors. I love it so much that I reached out to them to partner and now you can try it out for FREE for a month!
