Previously, in part 1 of our 2-part series on ADHD and sleep, we talked about the major issues we run into with sleep and how to build a sleep map.
In this episode, we talk about the 3 major types of sleep disruptors:
- Not getting to bed on time
- Difficulty falling asleep / sleep initiation
- Difficulty staying asleep / sleep maintenance
Awareness is often a significant part of the battle on each of these, but we go into detail about practical ways to reduce the effects that these have on your sleep. From technology and screens to supplements and medications, we cover it all. We also talk about the high correlation between sleep apnea and ADHD, and David commits to getting checked out.
