Nature is the first home of man. In the great outdoors, the primitive man carried out all the activities, i.e., sleeping, eating, and hunting. Nowadays, we spend most of our time indoors at home, school, or the office, etc., and get very little outdoor exposure.
Research indicates that kids have an average screen time of seven hours, i.e., they spend seven hours using electronic gadgets such as phones, laptops, tablets, etc. Their outdoor exposure and physical activities have become very limited, and they prefer an easy and sedentary life indoors.
This hurts children's mental, physical, and intellectual growth and development. On the other hand, nature-inspired physical activities such as jogging, hiking, swimming, rowing, etc., lead to more well-rounded children with better cognitive abilities.
