Both of my best friends are way taller than me. I know I’m still growing, but I was just wondering if there’s anything that would make me taller quickly? I don’t like being short!

Sick of Being Short


We’re sorry, but there’s no secret potion that will make you grow! But not to worry…just because your friends are taller than you now doesn’t mean they always will be! Everyone grows at her own pace, so give yourself time. For now, focus on eating right so you get all the vitamins and nutrients your growing body needs. Getting the recommended eight hours of sleep each night and exercising regularly are also super important while your body is developing (and afterwards too)! It’s never too early to start these good habits. Another tip…stand up straight! Good posture will give you an instant height boost!
