child development and sleep


  • Artificial light from all of our smart devices enter the eye and inhibit sleep-promoting neurons and activates arousal-promoting neurons
  • This will suppress the release of melatonin, which is the hormone that promotes sleepiness.  With less melatonin, we are more alert and there is a significant interference with sleep.
  • With the amount of technology used in society, light exposure throughout the day has increased changing our natural circadian rhythm and causing sleep deprivation
  • Sleep deprivation causes a greater risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression and stroke
  • Children with not enough sleep become hyperactive and have difficulty focusing their attention
