Sleep problems in children with ADHD are likely to be multifactorial in nature, and potential etiologies range from psychostimulant-mediated sleep-onset delay in some children to bedtime resistance related to a comorbid anxiety in some or oppositional defiant disorder in others.

The fact that some children with ADHD manifest decreased symptoms in stressful situations (such as in the physician’s or principal’s office) provides additional support for this theory, since stress increases the level of norepinephrine.

  • You two should just be looking at each other.
    Looking back and forth is distracting.
    I’m here to watch your conversation.
    You can’t see us so what does it matter that your looking at the camera?
    Just some friendly constructive criticism.
    ������

  • If I take my meds in the early afternoon, I sleep better because my brain isn’t going on a 30 minute rant about the universe and why things ate the way they are.

  • I feel like you just revealed my life with this video �� Thank you.
    Sometimes I don’t even realize how late it is until the sun comes up -_-

  • Title: The Overlooked Connection Between ADHD and Sleep
    One of the first lines: The relationship between ADHD and sleep has been a feature of research for years.

    So… that doesn’t sound very overlooked then?

  • I have a son who has ADHD, who sleeps pass 3am cause he is just super hyper and can’t even stay still.. So I have been using this specific video and in less than 5 minutes into the song he passes out.. So every night before bed time, he would ask to play this and turn off the lights.. Oh forgot to mention that he hates the lights off, so this music doesn’t just make him sleep but it also makes him feel safe.. Thank you so much for making this.. I can now sleep early and peacefully.. lol

  • As someone with ADHD, this works most of the time. I also deal with PTSD, which can sometimes keep me up for hours on end. Those two together make it nearly impossible to fall asleep, but this has helped a lot. Thank you ��

  • When I was little I would just…randomly take a nap when I felt tired lol. It would be playtime and I would be like “I’m done” and lie down. This would be at school. Bored? Sleep. Actual Naptime? I’d sleep so hard when people wake me the bright lights are already on, everyone is gone, and I’m being picked up from school. I have been permanently tired since birth. ��

    (Edit: Also wanted to add that trying to wake up in the morning was like fighting out of a coma. This has been from elementary school and onward. I didn’t have a phone then so y’all tell me what was up ��)

  • I’m add innatentive and im pretty much tired all the time. Have “power napped” once or sometimes twice a day since I was about 12. My night time sleep is pretty bad though apparently. I used some sleep monitoring equipment and it turns up I wake up a lot and don’t get into deep sleep enough.

  • Our brains tone down when the light dims. That’s a natural process. But that doesn’t happen when almost every aspect of modern Life is flooded with artificial light. It messes with us in more ways than people are taking into account.

  • I don’t have ADHD but all this online school has made it even more difficult for me to focus on current tasks. I’ve always been sleepy and restless in class but I don’t really have trouble focusing when I need to. I also never really sleep on time but that’s just me procrastinating during the morning and afternoon and pushing my tasks all the way into midnight… ugh what shall I do with myself:(

  • I’ve always have had a hard time falling asleep and I have Adhd. Recently it got worse. As I got to fall asleep right as I start to drift my body will suddenly jerk and wake me up. I googled it (yes, I know. Best idea ever) and I might be doing so because of stress. Which, could very much so be true.
    I saw this video and was like ‘wait. May this also be a reason why it’s hard for me to fall asleep?’. I do appreciate this video. It’s very informative and has sparked an idea to take to my doctor about it. I thought it was normall for all these things to happen or for it to take so long to fall asleep but this might play a factor into it.

  • I have ADHD and I actually consume a lot of ADHD content online and this is the first time I’ve stumbled upon something connecting ADHD to sleep. The connection has always been there for me but it’s great to see someone talk about it. My ADHD symptoms and my sleep patterns have always been highly correlated and by far my worst ADHD symptoms have come at times in my life where I was barely sleeping (most of high school and the beginning of college)— ever since I figured out how to get 7-8 hours of sleep almost every night my sophomore year of college, I don’t even use Any drugs to manage my ADHD anymore. I am so so dependent on my sleep schedule for normal functioning and I do Lunt feel that people in my life understand or respect this. I love seeing this information made more well known!

  • Well, laying in bed, being bored, no dopamine. Would be nice to look forward to waking up after having a good night’s sleep. ADHD doesn’t work that way.

  • I’m watching this video after I woke up tired but not enough to go back to sleep and instead of making breakfast I’m waiting till I have to run to work

  • I have very severe form of ADHD, diagnosed and treated for it (partial success), I always sleeped like a baby between 01:00 amd 09:00. I have problems of feeling sleepy if I have to wake up early, even if i manage to sleep earlier and get my 8 hour sleep it makes no diffirence. It is the only thing that manages to kill my hyperactivity not boost it. So good news is that sleep wise I am doing great under the codition I stick to my sleep schedule, bad news is that ADHD has to a large extend ruined my life every way possible, although I have managed with professional help to pick up the pieces and fight back. Its a very long process but I slowly get there. Basically I get bored of anything in no time and motivation is close to non existant after getting excited for a shortwhile. But I almost never get tired of learning and studying which is a great bonus. I am also great at multitasking because that is well… less boring for my brain apparently. I also can come up with solutions very fast because hyperactivity works wonder on creative imagination. So it is definetly not all bad. PS: On the other hand watching TV while on bed trying to sleep kills my sleep cycle completely. Strangely the same does not happen with smartphones and tablets. Human brain is so crazy:D

  • My internal clock is great. I cannot sleep while the sun is up. I wake up every morning at sunrise regularly. My problem is that it takes me hours to get to sleep. I can get in bed at 9 but I won’t get to sleep until at least midnight. So it doesn’t matter if I only get four hours of sleep I’ll still wake up at sunrise. I’ll be awake unable to nap but feel sleepy. The only thing that helps me is magnesium oil. Seriously look it up if you aren’t familiar with it!

  • #notestoself #2020improvingsleep

    new term: delayed sleep phase syndrom…
    might be natural on ahdh people to get variations on cyrcadian rhythm (?)

    betterish studied approach to rest circadian cycle: morning sunlight
    alarm clocks with sunrise simulating light

    nice lighthearted video to watch btw… the pretty face helps of course

  • Can you do a show about how to ADHD without medication because doctors say we are drug seekers. No access to meds got any ideas? ♡♡

  • I now this video is tooo old but its 2:47am and i was in bed with out phone or anything from 1 am till now and i still cant sleeep so i decided to watch this video i said it may help me but it didn’t

  • I sleep a lot. I love dreaming, so if I wake up at 7a,m and I don’t have to do anything, I try to gp back to sleep. The problem is that I can’t fall asleep. I just lay down wide awake

  • My trouble is I do want to go to sleep and am sleepy, I just have trouble transitioning into ‘going to sleep’. Sleep procrastination, if you will. I can procrastinate through the whole night!

  • Wow, that’s so crazy. I was diagnosed at 25 years old. I’m still learning of all the things I experienced are associated with ADHD. I suspected I had ADHD, but I’m like the laziest person I know plus I suffered from depression, so my psychiatrist thought I was just depressed and never tested me. Well, until I got depressed because I was falling behind on my job.

  • Hi there, new friend here sent by your friend Miriam �� I love your channel content as I hold kids with autism near and dear to my heart. I learned something new everyday from my students in the 4 years of running a classroom servicing these unique, honest, and loving children! I hope we can stay connected ❤

  • I was thrilled to hear you mentioned Delayed Sleep Phase as somebody diagnosed with it. It’s such an uncommon (rare?) sleep disorder and my whole life has to be adjusted for it. Any possibility to spread awareness is awesome! I can’t conform to a 9am-5pm society, those are my hours to sleep!

  • Omg this is so relatable!! I thought I just had bad sleeping habits or Restless Leg Syndrome, I was actually diagnosed with ADD but I’m just now realizing I also have trouble just sitting still, which makes me think I’m also a bit hiperactive.

    Also, what the heck is a brain dump? ��

  • My body: “ok, so your natural wake-up time is roughly 6 or 7 AM”
    Me: “Cool”
    “Also your natural bedtime is about 2 AM”
    “What-“
    “Also you have sleep apnea, so any sleep you do get doesn’t really do anything”
    “But-“
    “Sucks to suck, byeeeee”

  • I happen to have started watching this video at 3:01am, and as a diagnosed individual, I feel appropriately and educationally called out.

  • Flashbacks to 4 year old me staring at the ceiling wondering if I’m going to die earlier since I’m spending more of my awake time at night oof

  • As an adult with ADHD I would recommend parents expose their kids to gymnastics, dance or any other physical activity that uses the entire body, does not require a partner or a team, and that has a major mental/creative component at the top for discipline and expression. Skateboarding, parkour, martial arts… Avoid competitive sports like the plague. Your kid will become more aggressive, not less. They are better off playing video games than joining the football team, and so will be society. Trust me on that one.

  • So true on the “3am…”
    also, I have a strange symptom of adhd, where if i don’t move around enough, my brain literally shuts down into sleep mode. Only works after about 8 hours of no meds, so no help with normal sleep patterns

  • Hi, I have ADHD and autism which has made me have a really bad internal sleep clock. This really helped me very much thank you so much

  • My suspected ADHD ( getting tested in a month ) has ruined my body clock and I do spend way too much time on my laptop. for periods of time such as I’m going through lately my body clock refuses to allow me to get to sleep before sunrise for some reason. I can take a sleeping pill even a strong one and it doesn’t help. I can feel tired and wide awake at the same time. I have to wait until I see the sky being lit up in the morning and then I can go off to sleep.

  • Watching it at 4 am* over here.
    I finally got my diagnosis whilst in my late 20s regarding ADHD, but not one mental health professional was able to answer why I had so many issues with sleep nor my excessive daytime sleepiness that I’ve had my entire life.
    Wasn’t till I went to 2 sleep specialists that I learned it was solely delayed sleep wake phase at work and how I needed to understand I have a 7 9 hr delay, leading to why I start to perk up starting after 5 pm. After my own research I found out about the incredibly high comorbidity rate between delayed sleep wake and ADHD… And also how the majority of people don’t believe it to exist… Just like with ADHD lol.
    Thank you for making this video!

  • Yeah this doesn’t help. I can easily stay awake until the sun comes up and be fine. But after I fall asleep and wake up in daylight, super easy to go back to sleep. Sometimes its easy to fall asleep at 9pm but I wake up easy, can’t stay asleep long. So every time I wake up I attempt to move less to try to go back to sleep. Some times it works, some times it causes me to stay awake, even if its 2am and cause problems during day,

  • I’ve tried to fall asleep before atleast 11pm for the past 16 years. I function best after 7pm. Focus and creativity. ADHD medication keeps me up late even more ������

  • I’m surprised that the dopamine connection between sleep and ADHD wasn’t brought up. We know that at least some part of ADHD is related to low levels of dopamine in the brain. Narcolepsy is also a dopamine related disorder caused by sudden intense drops in dopamine lvls in the brain. My partner and his mother both have ADHD and narcolepsy and my partner’s ADHD is significantly more severe than most. The few times in his adult life when he hasn’t been taking his meds (due to health insurance lapses, which should tell everyone what country we live in. ��) he consistently has more trouble falling and staying asleep. It may sound counter-intuitive but both of us sleep better with a small amount of stimulant medication or caffeine in our system.

  • I bought a weighted blanket a while ago and I slept longer than I had EVER. I’d definitely recommend getting one, and Wal-Mart has them cheap

  • ADHD inattentive type here. I have the opposite. I can’t stay awake during the day if I don’t take my meds. I am a heavy sleeper and can sleep up to 10 hours.

  • I definitely got distracted a few times and had to go back because I stopped listening:) I also should be sleeping rn and I’m watching this to help me understand why I’m not sleeping:)

  • I’m a 16 year old with ADHD and I am on the hyperactive side (when I don’t take ADHD medication.) I think this is because my mind just keeps thinking about stuff non-stop. It’s hard to concentrate but eventually I manage to concentrate on 1 thought (a sentence) repeated in my head or concentrate on my breath enough to fall asleep.

  • I feel more tired in the morning trying to sleep in bed all night than not sleeping at all it’s like it actually takes more effort to sleep than not to sleep

  • exactly 03:40 AM
    I have Delayed sleep phase disorder
    Every Day i sleep about 48 minutes Later For The Entire Year

    Amy the only One Like This?

  • I feel like ADHD is the result of humans suffering war since ancient times.

    For example, restless nights could be an instinct of sorts to anticipate midnight ambushes. Hyperactivity could be a result of fighting a lot, or marching a lot. Attention deficits happen because soldiers are constantly on high alert. Fidgeting and impulsiveness could be survival instincts on full blast during a battle. The list goes on.

  • Melatonin improved my sleep by so much. Before I got the medicine I just couldn’t sleep. I could lay in a dark room all night wide awake. Now I just take my melatonin and I sleep well all night. It has changed my everyday life dramatically. And this video has now explained why:)

  • Adult diagnosed with ADHD here! Stimulant medication also makes it difficult to sleep. Personally I take sleep medication as well as anxiety medication to alleviate other symptoms of my ADHD and GAD

  • I think I might have undiagnosed ADHD but I always manage to go to bed at 11pm. However, I’ll rock back and forth for 30minutes to two hours just trying to get my mind to shut off and get some sleep. It does seem to be working though since I usually get a pretty good nights sleep.

  • I’m sorry, cutest videos ��!!! My brain �� is very exhausted after work, (night shift & commute.) But still watch videos as reward before bed. My bad. I’ll try hiding the phone, thank you��!

  • Falling asleep accidentally means I will wake up early and then I can’t sleep again. So not using electronic devices for 2-3 hours before bed is just going to see me fall asleep by accident from boredom.

    When I had enough concentration to read books when I was younger, I would hyperfocus and wouldn’t stop reading until I finished the book…. Which was usually 5am… Now reading a book is a surefire way to find me knocked out with the book or my phone (kindle) wedged under my body.
