With No Lack of Activity Choices, Your Girl’s Tiredness Takes Over

When we are not fully rested, it can affect our mood and interactions with others. Barna found that “the most commonly experienced negative emotion across all of Gen Z is tiredness…” Today, the demands of school, activities, socialization, and work tend to cause exhaustion in youth. Add in the excessive screen-time, and we get a body and brain in a constant state of freneticism.  

Help your daughter to separate her activities with partitions of rest, reflection, and prayer time. Giving her permission to pause will help her set healthy rhythms later in life. Remind her that Jesus is ever present, inviting her to tranquility and refreshment in Him.   

Jesus said in Matthew’s Gospel: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” 

Matthew 11:28, NIV
