To prevent eye strain, doctors recommend using eye drops and looking up and 20 feet away from your screen at least every 20 minutes for 20 seconds or more. The setup/update fatigue I'm experiencing may take longer to subside. In my own family, I limit screen time the best I can because there is real life to enjoy beyond technology.

I still have a couple more tech things to fix at home. But soon, I hope my children can start taking over the digital problem solving for their own devices. It will be nice to spread the fatigue around a bit.
