In today's world, kids spend 7.65 hours per day on some kind of screened device. Compare that to a mere 7 minutes that the average child spends in unstructured outdoor play. These numbers are having a profound effect on our kids' physical and mental health. Time spent active outdoors has been shown to improve health issues, from obesity to ADHD, and the well-being of everyone. But where do you start?
