Health Tips For High School Girls Health care tips and advice How to Have a Healthy Lifestyle in High School.
1) Learn how to eat healthy. Cafeteria food is very tempting, but eating greasy pizza and fries every day during high school is definitely not going to help you be healthy. Instead, pack your own lunch - this gives you total control of what you eat. If you find yourself short on time in the morning, pack your lunch the night before. 2) Exercise outside of PE. Many teens think that exercising in gym class is sufficient when it comes to keeping them healthy, but in reality, that's not true. In fact, teens need 60 minutes of physical activity every day ! There are many ways to get this 60 minutes in every day. Try aerobics, biking, running, jogging, walking, a team sport, dance, swimming, push-ups, crunches, jumping rope, walking the dog, etc. Don't make exercise a chore, make it a lifestyle! During a commercial break on TV, jog on the spot or do some push-ups. 3) Get enough sleep . Teens need about 8-9 hours of sleep every night. Getting enough sleep will help you get up easier, feel more awake and energized, and helps you focused at school. Make sure that you get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. 4) Drink lots of water ! Water help keeps your brain sharp and eliminates toxins in your body, as well as keep you hydrated and your skin clear and zit-free. Bring a water bottle with you to your classes or keep one in your locker. After PE, drink some water. Teens should drink 8-10 cups of water every day to be fully hydrated. 5) Avoid drugs , alcohol , and cigarettes. These will do serious damage to you emotionally and physically, not to mention that they're illegal. Avoid peer pressure and stay healthy. In a few years, you'll look back and thank yourself for keeping your life on track.
