The benefits of living a healthy lifestyle are virtually infinite. Adults should encourage teens to find motivators that don’t revolve around weight or appearance but simply promote good health. Michela V., a 16-year-old from Milton, MA, says, “My mom always tells me to get out and walk around every day even if it only is for 15 minutes because going out and accomplishing something makes you feel better about yourself.” Molly T. says, “My parents have always encouraged me to play sports, which helped me develop qualities such as passion and teamwork, while getting in shape! My mother is always there to support me and build my self-confidence.”
