I would add to the list to not do strenuous exercise in the evening and put down all electronics an hour before bed (maybe when you take your shower). The electronics are key for me. My brain is so bouncy and stimulated if I don’t stop them soon enough before bed.
I’ve found that chamomile tea seems to stimulate me, rarther than relax! I thought this was very odd, until my older daughter told me that our grandson (her son, who also has ADHD) is the same way. Chamomile tea in the evening seems to stimulate our Grandson, rather than relax! I wonder if other people with ADHD have experienced this. (I also wonder if there might be an additive to the chamomile “tea” that is the culprit, though I have also consumed chamomile as a “single herb” infusion (tea)–from bulk chamomile blossoms that I purchased from a health-food store. I have often noticed that packaged (bagged) herbal teas often include the words, “natural flavors” as an added ingredient, even when the only other ingredient is the single herb.
