Turning off phones- not pills- the key to better sleep for teens

Sleeping pills or taking any other pills for anxiety is not a solution for anybody.
We have to have some kind of good solutions for mental health. Like doing exercise, healthy food habits, no caffeine or sugar after 4 p.m.
Teens always keep their cell phones near the pillow.
I think they don’t want to miss any kind of alert.
They always updated with every kind of like or videos.
Some parents give them charger also to charge their phone. In case they all out of battery.
Some kids use their phone to check the time. This habit can put their brain for heavy work mode.
The workload brain never stops working even they sleep.
The teen should engage in some kind of relaxed activities after 8 p.m.
Such as reading a book, yoga etc.
Even over‑the‑counter remedies like melatonin, “PM” analgesics like “Advil PM,” or diphenhydramine (generic Benadryl), can be inappropriate for young people. Studies evaluating efficacy and safety of these medications were never intended to evaluate efficacy and safety in children.

Turning off phones- not pills- the key to better sleep for teens. According to Anne Mason’s psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner,” I’ve got 15‑ to 17‑year‑olds coming into the clinic reporting they can’t sleep at night,” said Mason, who’s also director of the Washington State University College of Nursing’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree program. “These young men and woman are describing sleep interruptions not typically seen until late adulthood.”
Prescription sleep medications can have serious side effects including addiction, daytime sleepiness, depression, memory loss and nighttime behaviors such as sleep-walking, sleep-eating, and even sleep-driving.

If the teen doesn’t like to talk with anybody that’s fine. They can do some Yoga or read a book, or go and do fresh air walk, drink some Elephant drink.

The most favorable moment

My husband and I went to the Las Vegas in 1997 or before I don’t remember exactly. We drove from San Jose to Las Vegas. For coming back to the San Jose we took the National parks route. My husband loves adventure and national parks, nature things.

I am different, i like amusement parks:)

The Death Valley national park. It has only one restaurant and it has the casino inside. I don’t know now, because we don’t go to the Las Vegas after that.
I didn’t like that route. I played in the machine and got $ 45!!
The whole area was empty even though nobody was there. We wanted to pay national park entrance fees.
We went inside the office only one or two people were there.
We crossed the whole park. We wanted to see some people and nobody was there, no gas station also.

Finally, we reached to the Bakersfield it looked so empty too. We drove towards the “Mono Lake”.
The other entrance of Yosemite near the “Tioga pass”.
Near “Mono Lake”, there was one restaurant. When we reached the only restaurant they were about to close but they made some portabella mushroom sandwich. Those sandwiches were so tasty.
Since then we like to eat portabella sandwiches.
After eating sandwiches we reached to The Tioga Pass.
In the month of July, we have seen snow there. It was amazing to see so beautiful after so many hours scary drive.
