Students … do you ever talk to yourself?  What are you telling YOURSELF about YOURSELF?  Do you take time to tell yourself about the GOOD IN YOU … OR … do you listen to the outside noises and negative vibes around you?

SELF TALK is a GOOD THING!  Make it a habit to talk to yourself in a POSITIVE VOICE.  Begin each day with POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS ABOUT ALL THAT IS GOOD ABOUT BEING YOU.

Start today by telling YOURSELF at least (3) GOOD THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF.  JOIN US THIS WELLNESS WEDNESDAY at 10:00 AND SHARE THAT GOOD SELF-TALK THAT HELPS YOU BE THE BEST YOU!

YOU GOT TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
