Why Screen Time Is Killing Your Sleep

Healthy TV Episode 091

Am I alone, or are you also in a constant struggle to keep your screen-time in check?

I love my iPhone (and MacBook, and iPad…) and although these devices make my life so much easier in so many ways, they can come with some serious costs…

One major cost is the impact that screen-time has on our brain, and it’s ability to power down at night.

This can disrupt how quickly we can fall asleep, as well as the quality of sleep we get.

For more on how all this happens, check out our White Paper below: Reboot Your Sleep – 4 Ways Technology Is Destroying Your Sleep And What To Do About It.

It turns out she had recently read my article about Vitamin N (if you haven’t checked it out, it’s probably a good idea to give it a read first…) and she was really concerned about her 11 and 13-year-old sons, who typically preferred to stay indoors playing more sedentary games and usually put up a fight when presented with outdoor options… Especially in the heat of the summer.

If you’re a parent of ‘tweens (that’s 8-12) maybe you can relate too. This seems to be a fairly common concern when their interest in nature and the outside world gets replaced with iPhone’s and Xbox’s.

Incidentally, did you know that research demonstrates the majority of a child’s lifelong health habits are formed by the age of 12?
