We all struggle to sleep from time to time. However, some people struggle every night of their lives. I can’t imagine what that must be like, as I enjoy the feeling of waking up refreshed after a night of partying it up in Dreamland. If you have ADHD, depression, anxiety or another disorder, the chances are that you struggle with sleeping properly at night.
The reasons for this include any medication that you might be taking and the fact that your mind is forever racing. This can be challenging as you need to be awake during working hours in order to fulfill your daily duties at work. Sadly, there is not a one size fits all method of managing this challenge.
Medication that inhibits sleep
If you are on medication, speak to your doctor about adjusting your dosage. Some doctors believe, however, that taking medicine about an hour before retiring actually promotes good sleep. Discuss this with him and see what he says. You may want to try Nature’s Raw Guarana to help balance your focus and bring about mental alertness during the day.
If you’re a light sleeper…
Lights aggravate the situation for ADHD sufferers so dim all the lights a while before retiring. This includes getting away from the computer and TV at least 30 minutes before you intend going to sleep.
Stress, ADHD and sleep
Do anything that you can to relax your brain. This includes soft music, earplugs or soft white noise to set the tone for relaxing. Lie on your back and start relaxing one muscle at a time. You should work from your feet upwards. Breathe in and out slowly during this process so that you begin to relax nicely.
Go to sleep and wake at the same time daily
A good waking and going to sleep routine is essential if you have ADHD. Make sure you have a nightly routine designed to get you to fall asleep at the same time each night. The same applies to your morning ritual. Doing so will give your body and mind some rhythm and this will enhance the quality of your sleep no end.
Support your sleeping pattern
Identify anything that hinders your sleep. This could include being on the PC, talking on the phone or watching TV too close to bedtime. Make notes of these and other stimulating things that keep you lying awake at night. Ask family members to help you with this so that you get a restful night’s sleep. Lastly, set your alarm clock for about an hour before bedtime. This will give you sufficient time to do everything that you need to do before going to sleep.
