It is very difficult to take the time to take care of our bodies. Adolescence is such a tumultuous time. For many of us, our priorities get skewed in favour of peer pressure and doing everything else that others are doing. But this is a sure recipe for leading a sedentary life.
With the ubiquity of ipods, internet, cell phones, tablets, and other gadgets, it is difficult for adolescents to be active, healthy, and exercise. But this is crucially important in order to stay healthy.
Here are a few tips to take charge of your health.
First, make sure that you get some exercise each and every day. This is necessary to avoid obesity and to improve your memory.
Second, have only a few times during the day where you are plugged in. The other times, make them unplugged times.
Third, try to do other things than watch television in the evening. You can watch television for an hour or so and then read or do your homework.
Fourth, try to get an exercise regiment in place for yourself. You may even inspire your siblings to join you.
By following these tips, you will be staying away from technology and being too sedentary. You owe it to your health and to your well being.
