Take Control

During puberty, it’s a sure thing that you are going to have moments when you feel like your body is totally rebelling against you. Sometimes you just have to ride it out. But a lot of the time, you can take control over the situation by treating your body with respect.

  • Put good stuff in it: Eat healthy food and drink lots of water.
  • Put good stuff on it: Wear helmets, sunscreen, and hats when needed.
  • Put it to bed: Get enough sleep to reboot for the next day.

Growing up healthfully is as much about what you don’t do to your body as it is about you do do. So keep the bad stuff out!
