Playing outside

We all need to spend more time playing outside.

Studies show that children spend less than 30 minutes a week playing outside. That’s right. Thirty minutes a week, says James Campbell in a recent article in the Los Angeles Times.

However, they spend as many as seven hours a day with their eyes glued to some kind of screen. That’s right. Seven hours a day.

The statistics are similar for adults. We spend 93 percent of our lives inside buildings or vehicles, Campbell reports.

We all would be healthier and happier, the writer concludes, if we broke “the stranglehold of electronics” and spent more time outside.
