Slim Your Screen Time: Play | Explore | Connect
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenging time for many. Thankfully, digital tools have allowed people to work remotely, participate in school from home and maintain personal connections virtually. It's easy to understand why people are on their devices perhaps more now than ever. Unfortunately, spending too much time on screens can actually have negative health effects.
This summer, why not choose to make the most of it by living life fully — present and in the moment — when you don't need to be online. Don’t miss out on the fun and beauty that is happening all around you. Join Mayo Clinic Health System for a free virtual challenge to reduce your screen time so you can play, explore and connect more.
How it works
The challenge runs for two months. Complete 30 or more activities from the list of over 100 ideas. Complete them when it works best for your schedule, and check completed activities off the provided checklist for a fun way to track your progress. Ensure you follow COVID-19 safety recommendations when completing activities.
Registrants will receive 3 emails along the way:
- A welcome email will include the free printable/interactive digital checklist, bonus activities and motivational content
- A midpoint email will include bonus activities and motivational content
- A final email will include a survey to help Mayo Clinic Health System evaluate the program
Participate on your own or with family, friends or a group of students. Hopefully, this summer you make time to play, explore and connect more.
