As a teenager, you are exposed to a lot of stuffs around you. There are a lot of things that can affect you such as schools, peers, family. This could say a lot about you’re eating habits and that is why; it is hard to have a healthy eating habit during your teen years. However, there is an old saying that you are what you eat and you are eating a lot of junk food then don’t expect a healthy body. You might not notice it now, but as you grow older it will reflect not only on your physical appearance, but also your health condition. If you want to grow old having a great physique and a healthy body, it is vital that you act now at an early age.
A well-balanced diet plays a big role in your teenage life. And if you are indulging in sodas and junk foods then you won’t have the energy to keep up with some of your healthy peers. You should consume foods that are nutritious like whole grain, vegetable and fruits. You would also need to drink lots of water and if you have the money to buy natural fruit juices, you should drink lots of it too.
Because of the pressure at school and peers you hang out with, you are prone to staying up lately. Though, it is hard to avoid that, it would be best to do your best to stay away from all that activity. You need to finish your home work earlier. You should also choose your friends, so you can stay away from the bad habits early on your life. Your body needs at least eight hours of rest for it to recharge and be ready for the daily functions in life.
As said earlier, you need to avoid bad friends because they will drag you down too. If they are taking some alcoholic drinks, cigarettes and is abusing drugs then they aren’t the best choice of friends that you need in your life.
Include exercise in your daily life. If you can’t do it every day then have a schedule on when you should exercise. It would take a long time to see results, so you need to be patient and keep up with the exercise program that you have.
