How To Stay Healthy In Your Teens

 

  • Don't smoke.

     

  • Use a seat belt. The number one cause of death for teenagers is automobile accidents. Never drive drunk or get in the car with a drunk driver.

     

  • Don't use drugs or abuse alcohol.

     

  • Avoid drastic weight changes.

     

  • Do some form of moderate exercise -- as little as three hours a week will lower your future risk of breast cancer.

     

  • If you choose to have sex, limit your number of partners, always use condoms and add birth control pills (or some other additional form of protection).

     

  • Limit your sun exposure and use ample amounts of a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15. There's no such thing as a healthy tan, and you should never allow yourself to burn.

     

  • Get at least 1,000 milligrams of calcium per day, either from dairy products or a calcium supplement. Take a multivitamin that contains at least 400 micrograms of folic acid each day.

     

  • Have five servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Even three-quarters of a cup of juice, a small piece of fruit or half a cup of cooked vegetables counts as a serving.

     

  • Cultivate a close relationship with your parents, a teacher or another adult whom you respect and trust to help you make difficult decisions in your life.
