Discuss the various habits that adolescents should acquire to have a proper physical health.

Solution: Proper physical health in adolescents is a need.
  • A balance diet containing the right amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals.
  • Fast food which is tasty but does not have adequate nutrition, such as chips or aerated drinking, should not be used as substitute for meals.
  • Personal hygiene due to increased activity of sweat and sebaceous glands, proper personal hygiene is very important for adolescents, otherwise body odour and bacterial infection may result. Girls should be especially careful about hygiene during menstruation.
  • Physical exercise like walking, jogging, aerobics, outdoor games etc are good for the growing adolescent body.
