The importance of sleep

We discovered a striking link between light, sleep and ADHD, as can be read in two recent scientific publications. ADHD can be a cause or a consequence of a disturbed sleep-wake rhythm. This new insight can be of great importance in the treatment of ADHD.

Three out of four adults and children (± 75%) with ADHD have difficulty falling asleep. This sleep-wake disorder has major consequences for health, concentration and daily functioning: if you lie awake longer, you wake up less refreshed the next day, fatigue increases, and your school or work performance and concentration diminishes. This may seem like a no-brainer, but in our present age iit is a surprisingly difficult hurdle to overcome. As our understanding of the correlation between sleep and mental disorders deepens we also gain insight into methods of improving our sleep hygiene.
