Many of us feel stressed, worried, overwhelmed, and exhausted sometimes. We live is such a fast-paced, world of unrelenting pressure and expectations and there’s no sign of it letting-up.
Technology can be a good thing and it’s here to stay, but with all the accessible information, we can be bombarded and overloaded with information on a minute by minute basis.
Did you know that the average person spends 4 hours a day on their cell phone and the average teen spends 9 hours with half being spent on social media?
Information can create anxiety and the use of the actual device takes a physiological toll too. The National Toxicology Program and World Health Organization, reveal to us that the Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and the radiofrequency radiation have devastating effects on our health and especially for children. The results of this radiation also cause stress on the nervous system, which erodes our sense of peace and calm, causing us to feel overwhelmed, stressed, and filled with anxious thoughts.
If this sounds like you, here are some things that will help:
-Limit your child’s use of a smart phone or a tablet and do not let them hold it if they are watching it. If they play a game make sure it’s on “airplane mode.”
-Turn-off your cell phone every night (preferably an hour before bed) and don’t sleep with it by your bed.
-Turn off the modem/WIFI in your house and/or make sure it’s not close to your family’s bedrooms.
-Limit the amount of time you put your cellphone to your head, instead use the built-in speaker for remote use.
-Take a good magnesium supplement to help support your nervous system. (contact Donna@HealthyFamilyHappyLife.org for more)
