Hello internet! I told you that I’d be back!
I am already halfway through stage two, I know, but I’d like to reflect on my sleeping habits, and why sleep is so damn important.
Stage one of my eight stage plan for ADHDers everywhere focuses on developing a healthy sleep cycle, and doing something relaxing before bed every night, to ensure I sleep soundly, and with a peaceful mind – or at least more at peace than usual.
Well, I hate to say this, but i am doing pretty badly at this habit building thing. Halfway into the next phase and i still go to bed when i feel like it, not when i should. I think i have a solution for my shitting sleeping habits. Since i go to bed so damn late, maybe i need to be taking a short nap everyday to make up for that lost sleep? According to the National Sleep Foundation, short naps during the day (20-30 minutes) can aid in alertness, and concentration; something us ADHDers could really benefit from! So, I will try this out and let you all know how it works for me.
Needless to say, i still have tremendous work to do, and i am prepared for that. This phase is all about getting a solid morning routine in place, and I will also work more on catching some shut eye, and mid-day naps for alertness.
Thanks for reading, talk soon
