Errmmm... nea dt gcse, they literally don't mind what you make as long as you show the process behind it, so I would start by making an online survey and getting friends or people generally to fill it out, asking about maybe life structure, schedule, things they enjoy doing, and then take the data and work from there.

The good news is that you are surrounded by your target market (assuming you are at a school/college) so your peers will be a good source of information
Since teenage lifestyle is a very broad area i would suggest getting an A3 piece of paper and creating a mindmap with different headings. Each heading is a subcategory of teenage lifestyle e.g revision/school work, recreation, exercise etc

Under each branch heading start listing problems in this area, for this you will need to ask your fellow teenagers around you. As a teenager yourself you can try to fill in this yourself but it is better if it comes from others as differing perspectives are always good in order to generate as many varied ideas as possible.

At this stage you are just listing problems e.g a lack of work space to do school work, noisy environment etc. Once you have your problem areas you can start to design a product. The best products solve a real problem so if you do the groundwork now in terms of finding the opinions of your peers it will set your project off on a great start

i used to do DT NEA and inside the portfolio and each page is just A3 sheet . A mindmap is only part of the page. Like back then when i did it i was told like a mindmap was only covering 1/4 of a page and include other info if u want high marks with size 12 font

This is just a rough ideation process, there is no set way to do it, OP could do a huge messy one first and then condense it down a bit to put into their portfolio
Its not the size and the font that matters its the quality of the ideas, this is meant to actually help you i.e its not just doing a page for the sake of it.
You shouldnt get bogged down in layout and making it look pretty at this point, it restricts creativity. You should be scrawling ideas down as and when they come. Later on you can always rewrite it neatly on A3 to tick the boxes your school wants.
Ive done mindmaps for DT from GCSE up until university level, all of them have followed roughly the same sort of format with certain things such as splitting the topic into different areas and talking to people from your target market, being consistent throughout
