“Youth is our future” – an inspiring slogan, isn’t it? A slogan meant to that keep us accountable as our teens guides in life and wellbeing. Wellbeing lessons such as health education, nutrition and training. Yet, the statistics on rising health issues amongst our teenager is waving a big, red flag – calling for our urgent attention in addressing teen nutrition and training.
Teen Health Issues
When you think of teenagers health issues, weight management is commonly the major concern. However, health problems in adolescents range from a-little-unhealthy to straight-up lethal. Eating disorders and suicide remain at the top of health issues, along with body dysmorphia (small and big), stress-related illnesses, mental health disorders, sexual health issues and more. For example, something as “innocent” as learning bartering food with exercise can make a lasting, harmful impression. Symptoms take the limelight with many chasing solutions without understanding the root of a problem. As cliche as it sounds, health education starts from the moment of conception and birth. It would be ignorant to disregard its power on life-long wellness, wouldn’t it?
Each stage of maturity brings about different strategies, knowledge and intuitive wisdom. The formative teenage years are often the most outsourced by the teenagers themselves. How? Do you remember how invincible you felt during your teenage years? Every teenager’s journey varies and each unique individual are guided to understand and adapt to different strategies that work best for them.
Teen Nutrition and Training’s Effect on Mental Health
The practices within health and fitness goals can have positive carry-over effects on day to day life. Teens exposed to physical and emotional challenges can adopt critical thinking skills in other life obstacles. While the benefits extend to developing skills – like stress management, resilience, adaptability and self care – embarking on a wholesome health program will be an opportunity for them to learn and grow while enjoying the process. Think of something you wish you had learned as a teenager. Could that have set you on a different path with health?
Lowry and other researchers have been steadily building a body of evidence confirming that they also have a profound impact on mental health, through mechanisms as varied as the “gut-brain axis,” epigenetics, the impact of hormones on stress, and sleep. – Christopher Lowry, associate professor of integrative physiology at the University of Colorado Boulder.
