Are you listening to this podcast at 1:30 AM while rage cleaning your kitchen?
…when you “should” be sleeping?
Ask me how I know.
Sleep issues often go hand in hand with ADHD. In today’s episode, I’m sharing what’s working for me to fall asleep quickly and go to bed earlier. But it doesn’t include all that stuff you’ve heard a million times before and roll your eyes at. (I’m looking at you, “consistent bedtime.”)
Sure, we know that’s all helpful stuff, but as moms, we have a different bar to measure against.
When ADHD people struggle to fall asleep, it’s often because our brains are going 100 mph. When we’re anxious, our brains are also going 100 mph.
Personally, I don’t think so.
You can learn how to drift off to sleep quickly and peacefully.
You can learn what to do when you feel your panic rising to find calm and stay present in the moment.
