16. Your Health Matters

One of the best benefits of being young is having a stellar metabolism.

You can eat pizza and ice cream every day and not have nearly as extreme consequences as your mom would.

But just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.2

Your health matters, even when you’re young, and you need to give your body fuel it can use to grow and develop into a mature adult body.

Other health concerns some teens face are STDs, drug and alcohol abuse, and eating disorders.

Bring up these topics with your parents or other trusted adult before they become an actual issue in your life, so you can receive personalized advice on how to be the healthiest teen you can be!
