Cutting Down on Screen Time

                                                                                               

It’s hard to meet your physical activity goals if you’re spending too much time in front of the television or computer. Sadly, the average kid spends more time watching TV than running and playing—but you are not the average kid! Adults, too, need to think about how much time they are spending in front of a screen.

  • Quiet time for reading and homework is fine, but you should limit time spent watching TV, playing sedentary video games, or surfing the web so you have more time to play!
  • If you’re going to watch TV or play computer games, break it up! Take advantage of commercials or pause the game for exercise breaks like jumping jacks, racing up and down the stairs, or doing some push-ups or sit-ups.
  • Keep the TV off during mealtime and homework time.
  • Keep TVs out of bedrooms.
