Striking a balance: Screen time and self-care
Establishing clear boundaries for screen time and balancing it with offline activities is crucial for my son's overall well-being and development. It is important to recognise that excessive screen time can negatively impact physical, social, and emotional health.
To strike a balance, I plan to encourage physical play, outdoor adventures, and creative pursuits while scheduling dedicated time for technology-based activities. This will enable him to explore his interests and foster holistic development. Outdoor adventures like hiking, camping, or exploring nature can stimulate his curiosity and creativity and provide opportunities for interaction with the natural world.
Establishing clear boundaries with screen time and balancing it with offline activities, encouraging physical play, outdoor adventures, and creative pursuits while prioritising self-care can support his holistic development and overall well-being. By being intentional with our time and emphasising balance, we can ensure that technology-based activities are a valuable and enriching part of our lives without sacrificing other aspects of our physical, emotional, and social health.
