With the school holidays approaching, many parents worry about keeping their children engaged, healthy, and away from screens. In today’s digital age, children are increasingly spending their free time watching TV, playing video games, or scrolling through social media. For mums and dads of kids aged 4 to 14, striking a balance between relaxation and productivity is crucial.

The Rise of Screen Time: A Modern Challenge

Recent studies show that children are spending up to 7 hours a day on screens, leading to a sedentary lifestyle and impacting their physical and mental health. Excessive screen time can contribute to issues such as obesity, sleep disturbances, and difficulty concentrating. Moreover, children miss out on valuable opportunities for physical activity, social interaction, and skill development.

The Benefits of an Active Holiday

In contrast, an active holiday can provide numerous benefits: 

1. Physical Well-being: Regular exercise strengthens muscles and bones, boosts the immune system, and helps maintain a healthy weight. It also reduces the risk of developing chronic conditions later in life. 

2. Mental Health: Physical activity has been shown to release endorphins, the body’s natural mood enhancers, which can help reduce anxiety and improve overall well-being. Outdoor play can also decrease stress and promote relaxation. 

3. Social Skills: Engaging in group activities allows children to make new friends, learn teamwork, and develop interpersonal skills. This can be especially beneficial for children who may struggle with social interactions in school.

4. Cognitive Development: Trying new sports and activities stimulates the brain, improving problem-solving skills, creativity, and memory. This can lead to better academic performance when school resumes. 

5. Building Good Habits: Encouraging children to be active during the holidays can help them develop lifelong habits that prioritise health and fitness.
