Avoid known toxins
Avoid the major categories of unhealthy foods
Commit to not texting while driving
Control what goes into your body
It's easy to blame others (hello, fast-food restaurants) for why we have an obesity problem. But the fact is that, even with lots of outside influences, you still have the choice about what you do or do not eat, drink, or smoke.
Do one small (or big) form of stress management every day
Maybe it's just sitting in peace and quiet for five minutes, maybe it's some yoga or light stretching, maybe it's listening to music by yourself. Find something that soothes you (other than ice cream) and help clear you mind to tackle the tasks that await you.
Don't squeeze zits
Eat cruciferous vegetables
Eat five servings of fruits and veggies per day
Eat fruit but skip the juice (unless you are trying to gain weight)
Eat fruit but not all juices are created equal. Fruit is totally healthy and contains plenty of vitamins that are good for you, but fruit juice often has a lot of unnecessary sugar. Try diluting juice with water to help reduce the calories.
Eliminate processed foods

Exercise nearly every day
Find a mentor
It may or may not be your parents, but the important thing is to find an older person who can help you reach your goals, give you advice, and who really cares about your success. A teacher, coach, or another relative can be a great options.
Floss and brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day
Have a passion - and do it as often as you can (safely)
Get excited about what you do - whether it's a sport, hobby or other activity. Do it often - just make sure you also do it safely.
Have one buddy who shares your ideals about living a healthy lifestyle
Find a friend who you're comfortable talking with about healthy habits. Social networks (the live and in-person ones!) are so important to helping you develop self-esteem and a value system. Find positive people around you who can support you and share some of your goals.
Have your vaccinations against major diseases up to date
Have your waist size equal less than half your height (in inches)
Make sex a choice
Make sex a choice - not something that "just happens." And if you are considering becoming sexually active (whether you're a guy or a girl) remember to always carry a condom. And use a second method of contraception if you're having heterosexual sex.
Never too late to start adopting healthy habits
You get a do-over. Even if you've spent your childhood on a diet of soda and chips, it's not too late to make a change to get your body in a better place. It takes only two weeks to form a habit, so simple changes now will pay great dividends down the road. Start simple (try some raw veggies to get your crunch fix) and build up.
Practice smart internet safety
Know that what you write or post can be saved forever. Be smart about who you communicate with. It might be fun to post a picture from Spring Break on your Facebook picture. Maybe not so much if Aunt Judy, a principal, or future employer takes a gander?
Protect your ears from noise louder than a lawn mower
Health Tips for Teenager - Being Happy and Healthy. This also means keeping your personal device on less than 70 percent of max when you use earphones.
Sleep eight-and-a-half to nine hours a night
Sleep eight-and-a-half to nine hours a night (in greater than 90-minute blocks). To create a better sleep environment, keep your room cool, don't do any work on your bed, and limit the use of electronic equipment (especially your phone) so close to bedtime.
Take a multivitamin
Walk 10,000 steps a day (about five miles)
They don't have to be all at once (but heck, you probably do a chunk of it at school every day). Make it a point to be active and get your body moving. Setting a tangible goal (like 10,000 steps a day) is a great way to start if you're not already active.
Wear a helmet
Health Tips for Teenager - Being Happy and Healthy. When you're cycling, Rollerblading, skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, or rock climbing - wear a helmet. And wear a seat belt whenever you're in a car.
