This site, like many, started with an idea. An idea to help teens live healthful, happy lives. We here at The Teen Machine believe that being healthy doesn't have to be something you force yourself to do, no we believe that being healthy can also be fun and enjoyable =)
You wanna know the best part of our website? Well, since you asked nicely, it's the fact that's it's a site for teens made by teens! Therefore we understand the pressures of being a teenager and the challenges you face with trying to be healthy and balance the hectic life style so many of us live through.
We hope that by using our website that you'll be able to gain new insight on being healthy and the many benefits that you'll gain later on in life =)
We're a new site, so we're a little small, but that doesn't mean we're bad! If you don't see something you want to know about then just tell us and we'll add it =)
How'd we come up with this site?
The Teen Machine crew love being healthy, we're always coming up with new idea's to keep things interesting and fun. Well one day during lunch we came up with the idea of Health Weeks. The idea behind Health Weeks was simple, every week we would do something different to try and make ourselves healthier such has 1 week we'd only drink water, the next week we'd be vegetarian, the week we'd be gluten free and so on and so forth. Well after a while we decided we'd share this idea with others and see if they wanted to do it with us. Everyone we told seemed to like the idea so we decided to create a blog about it. We then thought maybe a blog wouldn't be enough, let's create a website for the whole world to see! Even then we decided that wasn't enough and after giving it some thought we decdied that Health Weeks needed some help to get people healthy, so we finally came to the conclusion that we shouldn't make the website only about Health Weeks, we should make them about being healthy in general! And that my friends is how this website came to be =)
