Revenge Bedtime Procrastination

i want to do things for me

Revenge bedtime procrastination is delaying sleep in order to catch up with having “me” time. It’s a way to reclaim time after a busy or stressful day.

ADHD procrastination

yet I'm tired...

It might seem awesome, right? But delaying sleep can make many things much worse, including ADHD symptoms. Not to mention that we might be more tired in late nights, so doing the things we actually want to do might not be possible. 

Lack of sleep

Not having enough sleep can impact ADHD symptoms:

  • Attention and Focus: Worsened ability to concentrate and sustain attention.
  • Impulsivity and Hyperactivity: Increased impulsivity and restlessness.
  • Emotional Regulation: Heightened emotional reactivity and difficulty managing stress.
  • Executive Functioning: Impaired planning, organization, and problem-solving skills.
  • Memory and Learning: Reduced memory and learning ability.
