On average, children spend five to seven hours a day on entertainment media, including televisions, computers, phones and other electronic devices. That’s up to 49 hours a week! Too much screen time can raise your child’s risk for developmental delays, learning and attention problems, anxiety, depression and other health issues.
 
To encourage families to unplug and recharge, Goshen Health is partnering with Goshen, Middlebury, LaGrange, Kendallville and Bristol public libraries during Screen-Free Week to offer a Brain Health Challenge to the community.  The challenge consists of five fun activities that participants can try to help improve their brain health.
 
"Screen-Free Week challenges us all to take a break from digital screens and be more mindful about digital choices,” said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and Chief Executive Officer. “And the best part is, we are here to help you and your family get started with resources and support.”
 
To participate, visit one of the participating libraries between May 1-10 to pick up a challenge card, or download a card at https://goshenhealth.com/health-library/community-engagement-special-events. Complete the challenges and return your card to one of the libraries for a chance to win one of five family fun baskets The challenge is available in English and Spanish.
