Teenagers tend to avoid doing exercise


Teenagers often fail to make fitness and health priorities after leaving home and living in another city for college. Daily life such as eating with a balanced diet and exercise are often not met enough.

Moreover, most teenagers when entering the life of students often leave home and become boarding children. Where the life of a boarding child is synonymous with a less organized and less healthy lifestyle. Children boarding often do not meet the needs of healthy food intake and exercise.

"Teenagers who are physically active tend to remain active throughout their lives.The transition from late adolescence to early adulthood is the most dramatic decrease in physical activity in almost all of one's life.Expansion of activity in adults is quite important.This is a critical period in which we are right Can really intervene, "said Dr. Matthew Kwan, a researcher at McMaster University, Ontario, Canada as quoted by HealthNews, Wednesday (4/1/2012).

The transition from adolescence to early adulthood significantly shapes the habits of old age. So physically active teenagers tend to stay active during their lifetime. So keeping the habit of regular physical activity is very important.

With regular exercise can also have some benefits as quoted from MayoClinic, among others:

1. Maintain a fixed weight within the normal range.
2. Prevent illness.
3. Increase the mood.
4. Increase energy.
5. Get better sleep quality.

A recent study has been conducted involving 683 Canadian teenagers aged 12-15 years. The results of the study found that, there was a 24 percent decrease in physical activity from adolescents to early adulthood. The results also showed a significant decrease between boys entering college or university.

The results of the study have been published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. Decreased physical activity also usually coincides with other risky behaviors, such as smoking and consuming alcoholic beverages.

"When entering university life, students often forget about the needs of sports, and women who are less physically active when they become college students show only a modest decline in physical activity, perhaps because women experience the greatest decline in previous physical activity in adolescence." Kwan.
