3 Food You body needs food to help it grow and repair itself and to provide energy to keep you going.

4 Body care Keeping yourself clean is an important part of staying healthy. It prevents the growth and spread of germs. It also helps prevent such things as certain skin disorders and tooth decay.

5 Posture You posture, or how you hold yourself when you stand, sit and move, can affect your digestion and feeling of energy or tension. It can also help prevent backache.

6 Sleep and relaxation Sleep is vital to your system. It gives your body time to grow, repair and refresh itself. Relaxation is also an important part of keeping healthy. It gets rid of tension and allows your body to “unwind”.

Some people deal with stress by drinking too much alcohol, smoking too many cigarettes or taking drugs.

4.1 Some reasons for extra care over hygiene in the teens are : 1. The extra dead cells made on the top layer of skin. 2. The newly–working sweat glands in the armpits and groin. 3.The extra sweating which may happen because of unsettled feelings. 4. The extra sebum which is made, especially in people with oily skins.

Thorough washing of the armpits and groin helps to guard against unpleasant odours. Feet should be washed to guard against fungus infection and unpleasant odour.
