1) Less screen time can also give kids more time to go outside and get some exercise or read a book. Recently, studies have shown that cutting down screen time can also have a positive effect on kids’ physical, social, and behavioral well-being, and it can even improve their academic performance.
2)Although some screen time can be educational, too much of it may have a negative effect on a child’s development and overall well-being.
3) Hours of inactivity interferes with physical and developmental progress. Exercise is needed to help children’s brains and bodies develop. Encourage physical play like jumping on the trampoline, riding bikes, building huts, sports and climbing trees. Play with your kids by kicking a ball, playing cricket and running races to show them you value being active too.
Sites for the adult part:
1) Excessive screen time has been found to increase the risk of diseases like obesity, diabetes and sleep problems. Research has also shown that the overuse of devices and social media can be linked to an increase in loneliness as well as depression in teens.
2) People who watched little to no TV and were very active lived about 2 1/2 years longer without cardiovascular problems compared to people who often watched TV and were not active.
