Did you ever wish you were as strong as your favorite pro football player? Maybe you wish you were taller or just shaped a little differently. Those thoughts are a natural part of growing up.
But learning what you can and can’t change about your body and appearance is part of growing up, too. It can be hard to accept — even for teens and grown-ups. But when people accept the way they look, they often feel happier.
Food and Fitness
Eating healthy foods and being physically active can make all kids feel better about their bodies. Why? Because eating a healthy diet will help you feel energized and keeps your body working just the way it should.
Watching TV and playing computer games can be fun, but it doesn’t do much for your body because your body stays still. Those are called sedentary activities, which means you sit while you do them.
But when you move your body — by playing, dancing, participating in sports, or even cleaning your room — you exercise your muscles. When you exercise a muscle, it gets stronger. And when you have strong muscles, you can do whatever you want to do, from carrying a heavy backpack to booting a ball into the soccer net. Goal!
Kids (and grown-ups!) feel better about their bodies when they feel strong and know that their bodies can do whatever they want them to do. So climb a hill, jump some rope, ride a bike, swim a lap, run up the stairs, or even do the hula — and enjoy all your body can do!
