ADHD Brains Hate Mornings
ADHD brains whirl and buzz and stew and wonder late into the night; we struggle to fall asleep and, therefore, the morning almost always comes way too early. On top of that, our brains hate transitioning, and the morning routine is just painful — so many executive functions being tested all at once. If your child has ADHD — or you have it yourself — you’ve probably devised some tricks and routines and incentives to help your morning run more smoothly. Everyone is different, but we’d love to hear what works for you.
How Time Timer Helps
At all times of day, people with ADHD often need ‘external cues’ to help them stay on task, prioritize projects, and set limits. For this, a favorite tool among ADDitude readers is the Time Timer — the visual timer that has helped people manage time for more than 20 years. Now, the Time Timer® MOD + Dry Erase Board allows you to list out three to five critical morning tasks, and assign a time limit to each. Empower your children to start managing their own morning routines by timing each task and checking it off as it’s completed. Or use it to get yourself in a routine. Repeat until it’s all second nature.
The Time Timer MOD + Dry Erase Board comes with a removable Time Timer MOD and a dry erase board that includes a caddy on back to easily store dry erase markers.
