ADHD symptoms under control during work or school time is the #1 priority. But ADHD symptoms are always with us – from the moment we wake up until the moment we fall asleep. Despite this, we often neglect other parts of the day even though ADHD symptoms have a significant impact during these times. Mornings can be especially challenging for people and families living with ADHD, however, recent research reveals that many physicians significantly underestimate the impact of morning challenges in ADHD, and as a result, mornings are not discussed or addressed. But mornings matter – a good one can set us up for a great day, and a bad one can ruin the day – so it’s important to give mornings the attention they deserve.
