Difficulty Paying Attention
A lack of restful sleep can make paying attention difficult. Difficulty paying attention commonly presents itself as poor performance in work or school. Some people may have trouble concentrating and instead find themselves consistently zoning out.
When paired with other sleep-related symptoms, difficulty paying attention may be an indicator of sleep apnea. Many other issues can make paying attention difficult. ADHD is another common reason. ADHD also presents with impulsiveness, troubles coping with stress and frequent mood swings.2‘Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).’ Mayo Clinic, Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, 22 June 2019, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/adult-adhd/symptoms-causes/syc-20350878
