5-1 Journal: Physical and Mental Health

Based on Module Fives articles on effective behavior change techniques in the prevention and management of childhood obesity, explain some of the practices that will enhance good health. Frame your answer around a major illness, such as juvenile diabetes, and thoroughly examine:

How this physical ailment could translate differently across gender

The vital role of the sleep cycle and the importance of physical activity in adolescents

How the void of adapting healthy practices could prove to have catastrophic consequences in adulthood

Stress management and its impact on health

The downfalls of inaccessibility for those who reside in geographically confining locations

After you have thoroughly examined the illness, suggest best practices from a health and child psychology perspective that could be beneficial to children and adolescents dealing with the illness you chose and support your explanation with evidence-based practices.
