Getting good quality sleep is crucial for overall well-being, and it becomes even more important when considering its influence on various health conditions, such as Attention/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Studies have demonstrated that sleep disruptions can worsen ADHD symptoms, highlighting the significance of addressing any sleep issues when managing the condition. Moreover, research shows that poor sleep leads to negative effects on your hormones, exercise performance, and brain function and also increases the risk of disease and weight gain. It is vital to ensure you are getting an appropriate amount of sleep per night to avoid these risk factors.
Sleep deprivation (lack of sleep) can be caused by multiple factors such as bad sleep habits, lifestyle choices, and other medical issues. Sleep disorders such as insomnia and narcolepsy induce problems with sleeping, and so do mental health issues such as anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD.
