MARSHFIELD – Just Look Up-Screen Free Week is almost here.
This national celebration hosted locally by Marshfield Clinic Health System Center for Community Health Advancement and Marshfield Area Coalition for Youth (MACY)-Mental Health Workgroup takes place April 29-May 5.
Did you know in the United States, the average person spends 90 percent of their time indoors and adults average 10 hours of screen-time a day? Adults, let’s decrease our screen time to set good examples for our youth. It’s time to have fun and get outdoors.
Establish healthy habits and identify new ways to enjoy our community. Communities around the country will organize events designed to help youth turn off screens to connect with family, friends, nature and their creativity.
Each day of the week special activities are offered free to the public. To learn more, visit ccha.marshfieldclinic.org/screen-free-week/events/7days/. A few activities include live music, roller-skating, scavenger hunts, swimming, yoga for kids, and so much more. Plan for the week by downloading all the information you need to get started. Print pledge cards or pick them up at the Everett-Roehl Public Library, 105 S. Maple Ave., Marshfield, to obtain free and reduced fee goodies around town. You won’t want to miss out on these opportunities!
