Celebrate Screen-Free Week: May 5 - 11

ACSM is proud to be a supporting partner of Screen-Free Week (May 5 - 11), the annual celebration where children, families, schools, and communities turn on life — by turning off screens.

We all know that children spend far too much time with screens: an astonishing average of 32 hours a week for preschoolers and even more for older children. Too much screen time is linked to poor school performance, childhood obesity, attention problems, and the erosion of creative play. It can also be habit forming.

Celebrate Screen-Free Week and help break the cycle of dependence on TV, tablets, smart phones and computer games. Kids and families will have more time to play, connect with nature, read, daydream, create, explore and spend time with family and friends. And, of course, Screen-Free Week isn’t just about snubbing screens for seven days; it’s a springboard for important lifestyle changes that lead to happier, healthier lives all year!

Screen-Free Week is also a good opportunity to consider how to incorporate tech devices and apps that promote physical activity into your daily life.
