Many adults and children with attention deficit disorder struggle to fall asleep and stay there. Sleep can be easily disturbed by mental and physical restlessness, which in turn can impact a person's ADHD treatment.
Use these ADHD-friendly sleep tips to get a better night's rest every night.
Do: Drink warm milk. Milk contains tryptophan—the same natural sedative that's found in turkey—and it could do the trick for even the busiest ADHD mind.
Don’t: Drink alcohol. Digesting alcohol can affect your ability to stay asleep, and may result in frequent waking. Alcohol is a diuretic, and will also cause frequent bathroom visits during the night.
