ADHD is 24-7
For some, mornings are a chaotic blur of snoozed alarms, slapped-together breakfasts, tangled hair, and painful howls of “We’re late! We’re late!” For others, the afternoon witching hour — when medication has worn off and homework looms over the day’s stresses — is absolute torture. And still others lament their inability to turn off their brains and get to sleep on time each night. In short, ADHD is a 24-7 condition that impacts people in different ways, at different times of day (and night).
How Time Timer Helps
At all times of day, people with ADHD often need ‘external cues’ to help them stay on task, prioritize projects, and set limits. For this, a favorite tool among ADDitude readers is the Time Timer — the visual timer that has helped people manage time for more than 20 years. Designed to help manage the age-old question, “How much longer?” the Time Timer reinforces the concept of elapsed time and helps many families manage mornings, homework, screen time, and more.
