Teenage is the time of place when a person is poised on the threshold of adulthood and this period is really crucial in life. It is a time when you are full of energy and you are brimming with playful energy. Having said that, it is vital that you take good care of health and fitness at this stage in life. To that end, teenagers should be encouraged to exercise regularly at home. Good physical conditioning will enable them to be good at sports and other extra curricular activities.
One of the other notable aspects of a teenager’s life is the mood swings caused by the sudden surge of hormones at this age. Regular exercise is known to be beneficial in this aspect too as exercise brings about a surge of endorphins which are good at lifting the mood. You will find that a teenager who can vent out his or her angst with some physical activity is less likely to be sulky. But the thing about physical fitness for teenagers is not to force them but help them find the one that works for them.
Means through which a teenager can exercise right at home:
As most of the youngsters today tend to spend a lot of time on computers, tablets, phablets and Smartphones, their lifestyle is not that active. Add to this fast food and you have bad mix. Plus teenagers are known to be lazy unless spurred to do things.
Here are some tips for becoming a more active teenager:
Walk and text at once: Since much of a teenager’s life is spent on texting, updating status and more on phones, the one way to encourage them to get in some physical activity is to keep walking even as they do these things.
When the ad is on keep moving: Another habit that teenagers tend to have is become glued to the television. You can encourage them to do some freehand exercise during commercial breaks or even life a few waits during breaks.
