Do you remember your teenage years?? Your first crush, first heartbreak?? More about teenage life on the blog with Olly.

MY TEENAGE MEMORIES

Gosh, who has crazy, high school memories?? I was just telling my daughter, Bella, that I remember my first crush and first heartbreak like it was yesterday. I absolutely love that I was a teenager in the 90’s. MTV music videos, Doc Marten’s, 90210, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, the M.A.S.H. Game, Rave hairspray, Sun-In, LipSmackers, Sunflower perfume, and baby oil (for suntanning on the roof) are just a few, teenage memories that come to mind!!!

When I was 13 years old, I can recall the exact moment that I became aware of my body and my weight. The scale was now saying that I was over 100 lbs!!! I wasn’t too happy. And, on top of all of that, I wasn’t blessed with clear skin like all of my closest friends.

Teenage years are considered to be the best and the worst years of a person’s life.

If I could go back…

I continuously tell Bella that I wasted so much time comparing myself to those around me. Those teenage years are a pivotal time that will have a huge impact in who we are as an adult. It is so important as a parent that I help her face these next few years. Her health, her emotions and her thoughts are three things that she is in charge of for the rest of her life. We are addressing all three right now in her life.

For her health, we encourage her daily to get good rest, a balanced diet, and essential vitamins and minerals. We were introduced to the OLLY vitamins last year. All of our kids loved them. They now created a special formula just for her age, OLLY Girl, that supports health and nutritional needs of vibrant teenage girls. Vitamins A, C & E + Zinc help fight free radicals to support clear, healthy skin from the inside out. I don’t want her to struggle like I did with my skin so this is so important for me to teach her simple ways to take care of herself starting now. To purchase or to read more about this multivitamin, you can go HERE.

As far as her emotions and her thoughts, I could right a book. I do feel that your physical health is connected to your mental and emotional health.

If I were young again…

So, what other advice would I offer Bella?? Hmm, I would definitely say to listen to the needs of your body. If sluggish, exhausted, dry skin, or oily skin, we need to feed our body the correct nutrients. This will boost your stamina which will help with concentration, studying, club activities, and sports. I should have had a better diet in high school. This weakness carried over into my adult life. As a mom, I love that I can speak from experience.

    Your daughter is so gorgeous and I see where she gets it from 🙂 It’s so amazing that you have experienced some of the same things she is now and can offer her not only advice, but wisdom, which means so much more. I’ll have to look into OLLY for my teenage stepson to see if they have a boy version!

    Such a great advice! I would say that to my kids as well. Because when I was young, like you, I tend to abuse my body. Even if I was tired, I would still go out and have fun with my friends even though I knew I shouldn’t be.

    I remember parts of my teenage years like they were yesterday too. I would tell my younger self to quit comparing herself to others as well. It’s good that you are teaching your daughter that!
