Exercise and health - for teens
Exercise helps keep you fit and strong. It also boosts your energy, reduces stress and helps you feel good. Exercise several times a week that 'raises a sweat' is good but even small amounts can help.
Reachout, a site with information about when times get tough, has a lot of information about the benefits of exercise and how to include exercise in your life. Check the section Exercise and eating well.
For more about exercising safely have a look at the Better Health Channel, a website providing health and medical information supported by the State Government of Victoria. https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/
