Screen Time by Nurse Connie
Readjusting back to some level of normalcy gives us the opportunity to examine a few of the many things that have changed as a result of quarantine and isolation. Lockdowns have created a culture of remote school, work, and human interaction out of necessity. Excessive screen time naturally became a byproduct of our community-wide goal to slow COVID spread down. Excessive screen time is harmful to people of all ages. Younger people being especially vulnerable.
A few of the health risks with excessive screen time are: sleep deprivation, lack of exercise, a decrease in focus or ability to finish school work, as well as lack of ability to control outbursts among young children. It is important for parents and school staff to recognize the signs of excessive screen time before it has a chance of developing into more serious disorders.
