Why Is My Family So Tired? Could It Be Our Devices?

Being tired is a common experience for modern families. From parents who work, sometimes multiple jobs, to teenagers with classes of reading and homework, to school-age children with activities multiple nights of the week, tiredness can be common.

But what if there was something else you could do about all of that exhaustion? 

Something that didn’t mean changing the family schedule and hiring someone to do your laundry?

If you are feeling fatigued, it could be due

  • Stress
  • Time Management
  • Overscheduled activities
  • Long work hours
  • Illness

But did you know that a huge contributor to fatigue is Overexposure To Blue Light Emissions from Phones, Computers and Digital Screens? 

Blue light can easily make you and your family members feel more tired than normal. The blue light from devices can actually delay the release of melatonin in your body. This makes falling asleep much more difficult. Our bodies depend on the build-up of melatonin to transition to sleep. Melatonin is directly related to your circadian rhythm.

If you wear blue light blocking lenses, you could notice relief in just days. 

Blue light blocking lenses allow the healthy parts of blue light to get through while blocking the amount of blue light you get overall. This allows for more regular circadian rhythms and the normal production of melatonin. Kids and teens are especially sensitive to these shifts. 

Using lenses while on devices, in natural sunlight and while watching television can help you to sleep better each night. Imagine the difference if you were to get your full 7-8 hours of rest. Imagine the impact if children got their recommended full 9-10 hours of rest each night. 

When you are less fatigued you just might find those evening soccer games to be more pleasant to watch. You may notice getting more work completed and a spike in productivity while at work. Perhaps that will mean that you could leave early one day and spend that time on some well-deserved self-care!

Perform better at work. Children will perform better at school. And you will all sleep better at night. Don’t waste another day feeling exhausted by life.
