Health Matter

Australia is one of the most obese places in the world and it is getting worse due to the junk food we have in our every day life. Our body stores unused energy from food and if you are a healthy person you will burn it off doing exercise but alot of kids are not doing this and all they do is sit down and eat unhealthy junk food. When you do not balance healthy eating with regular excercise, after a while that energy will turn into fat and then you will become obese after a long period of time. A bad food choice is one of the main things that is affecting children because they do not know what is good or bad. Australian children are less active than they were in the past. Spending a lot of time on non active pursuits – Australian children watch on average around 2½ hours of television a day, as well as spending time using computers and other electronic devices. The moral of this is to have a healthy diet get out and about and do not just sit on the couch all day and eat!!!

Components of health

Young peoples mental health

The Australian government says that one in five young Australians are likely to be experiencing mental illness, and less than 40% are comfortable seeking professional help. This is a big problem in young Australians now a days. A good way to stop mental health problems or depression is to speak to someone and get some proffessional help but as the survey shows, that to little people are doing this. The Australian governmenmt in 2012 had started 10 recommendations on what to do if you are suffering and then in 2013 they added another 8 and now there are 18. The one I thought the most important ones are: a) to let everyone have access to mental health hospital including the Aboriginal and Torres Strait people because they are said to most likely suffer mental illnessess. b) to increase the access to timely and appropriate mental health services and support from 6-8 per cent to 12 per cent of the Australian population.

Childhood obesity

Alternate health services, otherwise known as complementary therapies, often claim to treat the whole person rather then the sympton of the disease. These include homeopathy, naturalpathy, yoga and acupuncture. They often help and work along side conventional medicine.

Disease common in young children

Healthy decision making

Good decision making is a big part in a young childs life. A good and healthy decision can be rewarding but a bad one can be very dangerous. A number of things can get in the way of a good and healthy decision. One of the main ones is when a child is scared or under pressure. One of the main bad decisions made in my family is before dinner. It is when my brother or I will have a snack, some crackers or chocolate before dinner, we will not be hungry and we will get in trouble by mum or dad. What i am trying to say is a decision will always come with a consequence. A good decsion comes with a good consequence but a bad one comes with a bad consequence. Too much of young people today make bad decisions and that can cause allot of long term injuries or you might get really sick. Depending what the bad decision is it can get you into alot of bad situations, so the moral is MAKE GOOD DECISIONS.
