Kids play outside? I know you might be wondering why I’m talking about kids. But I know that some of you are mothers, and I would also like to get you more involved with me and about health for you and your children.
If you are a mom and you’re unsure if you should be spending more time with your kids outside, then let me tell you what the recent studies say. YES. A very big YES.
The study done by Mingguang He from China showed that spending more time outdoors, or simply letting your kids play outside more, can possibly delay the development of myopia or nearsightedness. Not to mention the other benefits of playing outdoors like fresh air, development of gross and fine motor skills, and a lot more!

But what benefits does this have for you as a mother?
If you let your kids play outside, you will also be able to relax and read a book whilst watching them. Or you can go to the park, sit down and do some coloring with them (it’s a trend). Or you can also get some tan while you’re out!
Just because your kids are playing it doesn’t mean that you can’t play, too. Be creative. You have been multitasking for a long time and this one isn’t going to hurt. Just make sure your kids stay within a safe range. So also be smart about the area that you choose.
