When you were a teen, you thought you were the bee's knees! And while that's perfectly okay, you just didn't have the best advice for yourself all the time, and certainly not any advice that would take you to adulthood. Here are six lies your teenage self told you.
If this ain’t the biggest crock of sh-t ever! Fast metabolism, slow metabolism — all of this is fancy jargon. If you don’t get your butt off the couch now, and quit watching Maury when school gets out, you’re going to look like the people on Maury, and no one wants that. Find a sport or activity you love now, so you will do it for the rest of your life — running, rock climbing, yoga, whatever! And don’t forget, nutrition is the most important. Sure, drinking juice tastes good, but when it turns into sugar, and that breaks down into fat, and that leaves a tire around your midsection, you’ll be kicking yourself over the fact that you didn’t incorporate water into your diet a long time ago.
3. The job with the most money will always be the most important
When you’re in high school, your biggest worries are how you’re going to get those overpriced sneakers and how you’re going to get to Six Flags with your friends. So, of course, you’re going to want a job to showcase your wants, right? It’s definitely cool to want a lot of cash, but when you factor in things like, umm, I don’t know, bills, you realize that there are more important things to spend your money on. And when you’re 17, you have NO CLUE what job you’ll have for the rest of your life. It’s said to do what you love and the money will come…eventually.
