GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) - "Green time" play may be more beneficial to your child than you realize. It can help with attentiveness, improved sleep, problem solving skills, and even higher test scores. Green time play is play that takes place in an outdoor setting with lots of green (think grass and trees). Having your child play and do different activities in a green setting has been shown to have many benefits.
According to the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, a study of more than 400 children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder demonstrated a link between the children's routine play settings and the severity of their symptoms. Those who regularly play in outdoor settings have milder ADHD symptoms than those who play indoors or in built outdoor environments, the researchers found.
