From the Boards: [LOVE YOURSELF]

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and everyone is starting to plan out gifts for significant others and daydream about romantic evenings. Even though someone special is most likely occupying much of your thoughts, there’s one more special someone that I want you to focus on this year: YOURSELF. If people spent more time loving their own bodies, thoughts, and ideas, perhaps peer pressure would be a lessened concern in our young peoples’ lives. If you’re looking for positive affirmations and inspiration for self-care, take a look at our [LOVE YOURSELF] board on Pinterest. 🙂

Spend time this Valentine’s season gathering inspiration for self-care!

One of the biggest factors in being courageous enough to Rethink the Drink in your social life is CONFIDENCE and SELF-ESTEEM! If you are confident in yourself and don’t feel the need to give into social pressures to take part in risky behavior, things will be a lot easier for you! Here are some inspirational pictures from our [LOVE YOURSELF] board on Pinterest! Follow us for more inspiration!

Take these messages to heart and be courageous in who YOU are! You don’t need to give into social pressure to do dangerous things (i.e. underage drinking and substance abuse). You are better, stronger, and more precious than that! Make wise choices!
