ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

stick figure scratching head and sitting on a red question mark answering questions about ADD and ADHDWhat Do ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) Mean, and Are You Experiencing the Symptoms? Is it related to sleep disorders? Do you need a Life Coach who specializes in this area?

According to WebMD, ADD and ADHD refer to a condition with symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity.

The symptoms differ from person to person. ADHD was formerly called ADD, or attention deficit disorder. Both children and adults can have ADHD, but the symptoms always begin in childhood. Adults with ADHD may have trouble managing time, being organized, setting goals, and holding down a job.”

The A.D.D. Resource Center gives more details. (Note: I’m going to use both terms (ADD and ADHD) occasionally, because (although I might be wrong) I don’t think everyone who has these symptoms is hyperactive. However, the new convention is to refer to all symptoms under the label ADHD.)

Sleep Like A Baby

DO YOU SLEEP LIKE A BABY?  OR…

DO YOU HAVE TROUBLE FALLING ASLEEP AND STAYING ASLEEP?

SLEEP LIKE A BABY!

This is what I call the audio recording I created to help people quit worrying and not only fall asleep, but stay asleep with continued use.

DOES ‘SLEEP LIKE A BABY’ REALLY WORK?

Yes!

How do I know for sure that ‘SLEEP LIKE A BABY’ works?

…Because the sound engineer fell asleep while we were recording it, and because every time my employees tested it, they fell asleep part way through it and never could stay awake until the end – even though they were sitting or standing!

Each meditation is 30 minutes long and repeats once.  Click on these links to hear a sample of the music selections, which are:  1) Llewellyn’s  Reiki Starlight,  2) Llewellyn’s Reiki White Light, or 3) Tibetan Healing Sounds  with bells and chimes as background.  An additional version has no music, so you can have silence, or choose your own background sounds, like water, nature sounds, white noise, etc.  Copyright permissions were granted by Paradise Music & Media, and my sound mixer is Gokul Chalasani.

Sleep Like A Baby also is a GREAT GIFT to share
