Teenagers need to pay attention to their health to stay not just in good shape, but to be totally fit to take up all the challenges in life; following 5 tips can greatly help them in the process.
Involve in Physical Activities
Don’t be just addicted to Facebook; participate in physical activities too.
Tennis, swimming, golf, dancing, and bowling are the best ways to stay in shape. You must drink more water during this time and may also consume some sports beverages that have salts and water to avoid electrolyte imbalance and dehydration. Make physical activity as a part of your daily schedule.
Avoid Tobacco Products
Avoid tobacco products, like chewing tobacco, pipes, cigarettes, and cigars. Teens may get addicted to such things very easily than matured men. Besides the risk of lung cancer development, it can lead to disruptive lung disease, such as emphysema. Long term fagging causes wrinkle formation and premature skin aging.
It’s quite natural to experiment with new things being a teen, but do remember that people struggle a lot to come out their addictive habits. Drinking excessive amount of alcohol causes liver damages and you’ll suffer in future. Avoid taking psychotropic or motivating drugs as these can damage your mind and body.
Keep Yourself Clean
Acne is not caused by your food, though healthy diet makes you feel better and lowers stress. Wash your face minimum twice or thrice a day using a cleanser, soap, or face-wash to remove dirt, cosmetics, and oil. Washing your skin more often can sometime increase acne, rather than lowering it due to excessive irritation within the skin. Do not forget to remove makeup before you go to bed. If none of the above works, you must visit a dermatologist for early treatment and see improvement.
Healthy Diet and Maintenance of Ideal Weight
If your consumption of hot dogs, chips, or fries is greater than the amount of intake of vegetables, fresh fruits or juices, you’ll not only gain weight, but also be unhealthy. Note that apple pie, bacon, and soda rate poorly, while fresh oranges and broccoli rate highly. You can keep a track of your Body Mass Index (BMI) to see whether you’re over-weight, underweight, or normal. Make sure that you eat a balanced food everyday giving more importance to a variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. If you maintain this kind of diet, you do not have to take unnecessary vitamin supplements. Apart from this, you should drink lots of water (6-8 liters/day) and even more, if you’re exercising.
Obey the traffic rules, speed limit, and wear a seat belt when driving. A little patience can reduce the possibilities of accidents. Follow safety rules, like motorcycle helmets, vehicle seat belts and other things that allow you to live longer healthily.
Be Patient and Stay Motivated
Results do not arrive overnight, but they’re always the end result of hard work and dedication; motivation is the driving force behind staying fit and healthy. Stay positive and maintain a solid workout and eating routine to reach your goals.
