A report taken from the Healthy Youth Survey found a direct link between healthy living and good grades.
The students in my classes with the healthiest lifestyles also typically have the highest socioeconomic status, the most involved parents, the most stable homes, and the fewest problems with addictive substances.
Factors included in the report are:
- eating enough fruits and vegetables,
- taking drugs,
- soda pop consumption,
- hours watching TV, and
- getting enough sleep and exercise.
