For Teeners: How to Make Sure You’re Always Active and Healthy

Life as a teener gets more complicated. When you were small, most of the time, your parents worried about stuff for you. When you grow everything becomes different; you start to worry about your clothes, your music, your friends, you education—you begin to worry about everything. It’s a part of growing up and it’s only normal.

One thing you should be worried about too is how to stay healthy. Here are some tips to keep you in the pink of health, the same when you were little.

Choices count

When choosing what to eat, always go after naturally prepared food. This includes fruits, grains, animal produce, and vegetables. You should also look after how you cook your food; avoid oily food and go for steamed or boiled food. Going after naturally prepared food helps you avoid fat, which could be harmful for your body as you get older.

Suffer your sweet tooth

As a teener, you’re still prone to fits where you have craving for sweet foods like cupcakes, cakes, and the like. If you find yourself eating more sweets than you can have for a day, cut off from it and try to eat more food with natural occurring sugar. This means you should have more fruits in your diet. Aside from helping your craving, apples and other similar fruits can help give you more fiber.

Eat only what your body needs

The only time you should eat is when your body absolutely needs it. If you feel hungry, then eat, but don’t eat too much than what your body needs. People tend to eat more than their fill and that’s what brings more fat into your body. Eating only your fill for the time also helps you maintain your weight as well as the fats coming from the accumulation of food in your body.

Skipping meals is a no-no

Skipping meals is a problem that makes you eat more than is your fill. You should always eat the major meals of your day—that includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You should keep snacks in-between to a minimum to keep your appetite for lunch and dinner. If you feel hungry, you can substitute snacks with a glass of water or, better yet, eat fruits like apples or bananas.

Be active

Life as a teener is one of the best times that a person can have. It’s also a part of your life when you move around a lot and get into sports a lot. When you’re young, you should move as much as possible. This also includes times of your life when you can still move as much as you can.

When you’re young, you feel like you can conquer the world and everything’s possible. This is only natural; you should move and do as much as you can when you’re young so you reap the benefits when you’re old.

A Healthy Adulthood: How to Eat the Right Kinds of Food

When you grow into adulthood, the amount of things you can do only multiply. The problem, however, is that with the advanced age also comes a new kind of living. You should become more watchful of what you eat as well as how much you weigh; when you grow older, that’s when you should watch your weight for your health.

So how do you become healthier as you age? It all starts with these few tips.

Avoid being overweight

When you’re an adult, being overweight is no longer cute. It is cute to have a few extra pounds when you’re young, but it brings a lot of complications as you age. Aside from making you feel unattractive, it can also bring health problems like high blood pressure and cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, as well as certain cancers that you can avoid if you control your weight.

Stick to healthy eating

As much as you want to eat, you should take a closer look at what you put into your body. You should eat more foods rich in fiber as well as certain vitamins and minerals. Food like fruits and vegetables, oatmeal, seafood, as well as certain dairy products and root crops are good food to eat. You shouldn’t really be eating a lot of junk food anyway.

Diversify your diet

When you eat food, you shouldn’t eat only one food group. Being a vegetarian is good but your body needs meat; the same thing is true for people who eat only meat. When you eat food, you should really have different choices to eat. Mix meat with vegetables and other food to have as much of their benefits into your body, but control how much of them you eat.

Replace snacks with healthy ones

When you’re craving, typically, your quick fix would be to buy snacks at your favorite store. The problem is when you have health problems that prevent you from eating snacks like this. You could replace them with a healthier alternative like fruits rich in fiber. Bananas and apples stand on top of the list for being easy to eat, among others.

Keep moving!

Age also makes you fat, so you need to keep moving. There are many reasons why you should watch your weight. Being fat makes you prone to more diseases. It’s also easier to move as an active lifestyle makes you feel more alive.

It’s easy to become healthier when you grow up if you start it earlier in life. Even when you start late, that’s no reason to even forget trying to start at all. Get healthier and get more active while you still can.

A Smoking Workaround: How to Effectively Survive Quit Day

Quitting smoking is the most mature decision you can make in your life. It’s not that easy for some—especially those who’ve been smoking all their adult life. However, for some people, it’s just a simple matter of creating a plan and sticking to it. You need to decide and follow it through.

If you belong to whichever crowd, whatever your reasons, smoking is just bad for you. Here’s how to manage quitting for good.

Plan to succeed

There’s that saying that ‘if you fail to plan…’ you know the rest. Having a plan means you’re committed to seeing it through until you finally don’t crave for cigarettes anymore. If you’re having a hard time, you can ask help from a specialist. If you belong to the crowd who can quit on your own, do it. Be aware that only very few people succeed in quitting this way, though.

Find alternatives

If you find it hard to keep away from nicotine, you can go and find other alternatives. This is an effective way of managing your quitting step by step. You can use other sources of nicotine that doesn’t involve smoking other people to death. You can also have a specialist step in to help you with your behavior as well as an addiction to nicotine.

Keep yourself distracted

It’s not that easy to quit smoking since you’re leaving a big opening in your day-to-day activity. You can focus on other activities that are healthier and are more of a help to you. If you want, you can chew gum to keep your mouth busy. If that’s not what you want, you can step out and exercise or choose to walk around, see some friends, or go jogging.

Stay away from certain chores

When you’re smoking, some activities remind you of this life. You alone would know which activities these are and what you can do to avoid them. If you can, throw away your cigarettes or avoid places that would make you smoke again. Follow rules in places that prohibit smoking. You shouldn’t give in to smoking or else you risk coming back to that life.

Always keep a positive outlook

Quitting smoking is an immerse effort on your part. Usually, people plan long and hard for this sort of thing. However, a few weeks into it—or even as soon as a minute after you quit—you feel yourself wanting to get back into the habit. A big help would be to keep your head up and remember why you’re stopping in the first place. It helps you keep things into perspective.

Seek professional help

If you find that you can’t stop on your own, you shouldn’t hesitate to ask help from a professional or from friends. Let them know what you’ve set out to do and let them help you. As easy as it is for some to stop smoking on their own, it’s easier for most to stop smoking when they’ve got people helping them.

These are not the only steps you can take to stop smoking. You can go and create paths to help you stop smoking completely. Having a strong willpower helps tons, but having friends with stronger willpower is fine too.

Alcoholism and How to Stop It: Finding the Magic Medicine to Keep Alcohol Away

To be clear, there’s no ‘magic medicine’ or ‘immediate solution’ to stopping alcohol addiction. As easy as it is to get addicted to alcohol, it is hard to stay away from it. The only way you can completely get free of alcoholism is to seek help from professionals who know what they’re doing.

If you have a problem with alcoholism and you want to finally be rid of it, here’s a few tips to help. It pays to remember that it’s still better to consult professionals who know what they’re doing.

1|Know that you have a serious problem

Addiction is a serious problem. You never know how it started, though you may have an idea why you started it. You’ll never know that you have a problem until you realize and recognize it. Once you know it, you’ll have to figure out a way how to stop yourself from falling into the same problem over and over again until you find your way out.

2|Know the reasons for quitting

You know you have a problem, now know the reason why you should deal with the problem. The best way to do this is to make a list of why you’re stopping; it could be that you’re already walking away from people who mean a lot to you. It could also be a way to get the money you drink away back. Whatever your reason, find one that makes sense to you and stick to it.

3|Know your goals

When you’ve started realizing your problem and have a reason to quit, you have to set mini-goals and stick to making them. When do you want to stop drinking and how much—little by little—can you give up? You can make a list of it. Another reason you should follow your goals is to make yourself feel better when you complete each goal—a good motivator for completing it.

4|Know how to quit properly

Let’s face it—there are ways to stop and, sometimes, it’s better to just stop drinking bit by bit than just stopping altogether. You can do this by cutting back on the drinks until you find your reliance on it diminishing. You can then start cutting back some more until you feel you can completely stop drinking. By then, you can say that you’re completely ready to cut back on alcohol.

Alcoholism isn’t a pretty sight—you lose yourself and you cut yourself away from family. When you learn to keep away from drinks, that’s the time you start on the path to recovery.
