HealthWorks! At Home: Screen Time

HealthWorks! At Home: Screen Time

 Everyone spends at least some time looking at screens each day. From TVs to phones to tablets, computers, and video games – it’s easy to get lost on in a virtual word. But too much time in front of a screen leaves us inactive and checked out. That’s why it’s important to monitor screen time to make sure you’re getting enough physical activity and being challenged mentally. So take a look at these activities on your screen, then put it down to get started!

Physical Activity

Exercise can be fun and creative. Grab something from around the house to use as weights – water or laundry detergent jugs, canned goods, or books! Hold one with each hand then do:
· 
10 bicep curls
· 10 tricep kickbacks
· 10 shoulder presses
· Repeat as able or add in your own exercise
What’s your favorite activity? 

Homework

1: Go outside for a 10-minute walk. Make it more fun and heart-pumping by skipping or racing along the way.
2: Write a letter to an older family member or friend. They will enjoy hearing from you. Be sure to tell them what exercises/activities you have been doing – they might enjoy them also!
