Adolescence is a key period of growth and development, with the brain also changing enormously during this period. Recent research suggests that these maturational changes make the adolescent brain more vulnerable to the damaging effects of alcohol, with areas associated with memory and learning particularly affected. Under Construction is a highly acclaimed 4 minute animation that discusses adolescent brain development and highlights the effects of alcohol and risky drinking on different brain regions, as well as its impact on behaviour. It presents complex and up-to-date neurobiological research in a way that is engaging and relevant for teenagers.

Being an overweight teenager can be difficult. Not only are there potentially self-esteem issues which go along with being overweight, but as a teenager, one’s body is still growing in fundamental ways. Therefore, when one is trying to lose weight as a teenager, it can be much more difficult because this person needs to make sure that their bodies are still getting all of the fundamental nutrients that they need to properly grow. Going on a strict diet can be hard because it could deprive the body of essential vitamins and minerals, stunting growth and leading to serious health problems. Therefore, when a teenager is trying to lose weight, certain approaches should be used.

First, a doctor should be consulted. The doctor can let the teenager know what is healthy and what is not, making sure that they get enough of what they need to properly grow without causing health problems. This consultation can be rather important, making sure that the teenager is doing everything correctly.

After this, a teenager should enlist the support of their family. Only with help and encouragement will one be able to meet all of their goals and lose the weight they are seeking to lose. The family of a teenager will not only be able to motivate and encourage them, but can also make smarter shopping choices to help that person make healthier choices in their diet.

Self-motivation issues also need to be paid careful attention. Guilt is one feeling which needs to be avoided because guilt will only bring a person down more. Healthy weight is brought about through feelings of positive energy and motivation, which is not something which guilt will provide. Those feelings must be left behind.

Also, any teenager needs to be sure to have realistic goals. Losing weight will not happen rapidly, so any teenager must not get discouraged when they do not meet their goals as quickly as they would like to. Keeping a positive mindset will go a long way when it is paired with reasonable goals, making this an important step in losing the weight.

Daily exercise is also a must. Once a teenager starts weight loss for teens and begins to exercise daily, even if just in small amounts at first, they will begin to feel more energetic and start to accomplish more goals that they set for themselves. As their energy level goes up, so can the amount of activity which they do, which will eventually result in a much healthier lifestyle.
