January 2021 – Hot Topic – Healthy Screen Time (Part 1)
These days, you’re on zoom calls all day staring at your laptop, then spend your evenings watching TV while scrolling on social media. It can’t be good for us!
The world is changing. We are seeing shifts in how we work, connect, and even how our kids learn at school. So many aspects of our lives are shifting and becoming more digital. Which means a lot more time is spent looking at a screen.
January’s Hot Topic guest, Jeannie Sprague, is on a mission to raise awareness of the impact screens are having on our overall health. Through her work, she and her organization HealthyScreenHabits.org, is helping families everywhere develop healthier screen habits. She is also a mother of four – so she can speak from real experience.
