To reduce screen-time, you can…

  1. Listen to the radio
  2. Paint a picture, a mural or something else
  3. Read a book. Read a book to someone else
  4. Write a letter to a friend, a relative, or someone you idolize

  6. Play cards or board games
  7. Do some home gardening or plant small pots
  8. Go for a nature walk or a picnic
