5 Tips to Stay Healthy
Tip #1 Eat a Nutritious Breakfast
After a long night sleep it is important to refuel. It will help you do better in school. Some ideas for quick, healthy breakfast: Peanut butter on toasted whole-grain bread, Yogurt with fruit, cheese slices on toast, and Fruit on cereals.
Tip #2 Get moving....don’t be a couch potato
Walk, bike or jog when going somewhere. Climb stairs instead of taking an escalator. Try to do something active for a total of 30 minutes every day.
Tip #3 Participate in activities you enjoy
Always start with warm-ups to get the muscles going. Do 20 minutes of an aerobic activity followed by activities that will make you stronger like push-ups or sit-ups.
Tip #4 Drink Plenty of water
Your body is 65% water. That shows how important water is to your body. Make sure you drink a total of 8 glasses of water each day. That can include the water from foods such as fruits.
Tip #5 Watch out for portion distortion
Portion sizes are bigger than they used to be, and these extra calories contribute to obesity. Another key factor in weight gain is that more people drink sugary beverages, such as sodas, juice drinks, and sports drinks. So choose smaller portions (or share restaurant portions) and go for water or low-fat milk instead of soda.
