It could be at a party, a rave or on spring break vacation… some girls lose their heads and lose control, making choices they live to regret. Let’s encourage our girls (and boys) to have fun, but to always practice moderation.
WHAT IS MODERATION?
Moderation is creating balance in your life. It is being in charge of your time and using self-discipline to keep from doing too much or too little. If you study all the time it is not being moderate. The same goes with having too much “fun”. If you get really wild at a party you may find yourself in serious trouble.
WHY PRACTICE IT?
Moderation helps us to stay balanced, so that we are not controlled by our desires. Without moderation, we can lose our heads and overdo things like eating too much chocolate or drinking too much alcohol. We can even start to get addicted to things that can hurt us. When we practice moderation we make a choice to be the way we want to be.
HOW DO YOU PRACTICE IT?
You practice moderation by knowing your own limits and what you need to function at your best. People are different. For some eight hours of sleep is enough, for others, it is too little. Watch yourself to make sure you stay balanced and don’t let something begin to rule your life, such as social media, TV, computer games, food or even a person. When you practice moderation, you are happy to have just what you need!
WATCH THE “V” VIDEO:
Every year millions of students go away for spring break. For most, the good times will be a fond memory. But some students won’t practice moderation, and their vacation will be nothing more than a wasted week of excess.
Thanks to Dad, two friends practice moderation and modesty while on spring break.
