Keep Healthy, Stay Sane, and Do It All Over Again

Staying fit and well goes beyond just working out and eating good food. As a teenager, we’re more susceptible to external stressors that can affect our hormones, mental well-being, and physical growth, so it’s important for us to develop healthy lifestyle decisions at this stage.

Fill Up With the Good Stuff

Apart from keeping our bodies and brains in good shape, eating good food helps us develop healthy food choices that will definitely come in handy during adulthood. Get creative in the kitchen and mix up a balanced meal with the following:

  • Beans, Pulses, Fish, Eggs, and Other Proteins
  • Dairy and Alternatives
  • Fruit and Vegetables
  • Oils and Spreads
  • Potatoes, Bread, Rice, Pasta, and Other Starchy Carbohydrates

Maintain a Healthy Weight

Healthy bodies come in all forms and sizes. As long as we have healthy vital signs and feel great within, we shouldn’t feel discouraged in staying the way we are.

Sleep on Time to Calm the Mind

Regardless of how busy your schedule gets, it’s always best to get the right amount of sleep, especially for growing kids. Getting 8 to 10 hours of shut-eye helps keep your brain sharp, your skin glowing, and your body feeling amazing!

Keep Up With Vaccinations

Now more than ever, we all have to do our best in keeping healthy and building up the immunity to ward off any illness. So, get your required shots on time to prevent getting diseases and infecting others.

Toothbrush, Floss, Sunscreen

Build an exciting morning routine that focuses on personal hygiene. Clean your teeth, gums, and tongue, and don’t skimp on the sunscreen before leaving the house.

Keep the Volume to a Minimum

Prolonged exposure to loud noises including music can alter brain processing, making it difficult to hear other sounds than the ones from your speakers. This can damage your ears and have several negative effects on your physical and cognitive health.
