For kids there are many things you need to do to take care of your body. To keep your body healthy, you need to get Exercise, Be Flexible, Eat Healthy and get enough Rest. These are the most important things you need to do to have a healthy body.
To get exercise just start off simple, take a walk in the park or ride on a local bike path. Build up from there and make that walk in the park a run and start riding on the local trails iour community has them, but make sure it’s fun too. Change it up, make it even more interesting by doing different things like: go to your local Recreation Center and try swimming or play some Basketball and Baseball. Working out at the Gym is a great way to stay fit. It works out your entire body and builds strong muscles. It’s really fun too.
Staying Flexible is very important, especially if you exercise a lot or even a little, as your muscles can get tight and you might not be able to even touch your toes! Try doing Yoga and Stretching every day before you exercise, it will help loosen those muscles and relax them, plus it feels good to be able to reach down and touch your toes without bending your knees, does it not?
Eat Healthy to help yourself stay lightweight. Make sure you get all of the proper nutrients your body needs. Eat foods from the basic groups, eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, protein and fat, try not to eat too much Ice Cream and other fattening things for dessert, only have that occasionally. Instead have an Apple or an Orange. You will stay way healthier if you try to eat more food with important nutrients.
Getting enough Rest is vital. If you don’t sleep enough you’ll be tired and won’t be able to make it through your activities in the day, so for kids like me, try to get 9-11 hours of sleep a day. Your growing body needs its rest, otherwise you’ll be drowsy in the afternoon. If you’re exercising that rest becomes even more important. If you race make sure you take time off to let the muscles rebuild. It will help you immensely in the long run.
Doing these different things each help your body, when you eat healthy you lose weight and that helps you go faster. When you’re exercising proper rest is critical. So I’m encouraging you to take care of your body and stay healthy, get your Rest and Eat Nutritiously, your body will be glad you did! Remember, a healthy body equals a healthy mind!
