Thinking about having a drink after your hard workout? Research studies show that alcohol can affect muscle building by slowing down your progress. It causes dehydration and fatigue. It increases body fats and prevents protein synthesis known as the process that builds muscle. Most importantly, it increases creatine kinase; the enzyme that signals tissue damage.

“Thank you, mother!” and “Thank you, father!” are clips from the Wise Parent campaign, run by National Insitute for Health Development and Ministry of the Interior. (Estonia, 2016).
These clips show the gratitude that a child has for his/her parents who have always been supportive and who also directs a child to achieve goals even when it´s hard (not to fall our from music school or spend endless hours behind a computer screen). Also, a child thanks that they explained them the consequences of alcohol so that now, they can do what they have always dreamt of.

FACE THE MUSIC FOUNDATION IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION USING THE POWER OF MUSIC TO HELP PEOPLE RECOGNIZE AND CONQUER ADDICTION.
“Face The Music Foundation encourages awareness about addiction and recovery through information based outreach, fundraising events, and social media. We believe that by erasing the stigma associated with the third largest cause of accidental death in the United States, it becomes easier for recovery-based resources to be accessible for anyone who needs them.”
“I Got This” is sponsored by Recovery Unplugged, a revolutionary music-based treatment center with various detox, residential and inpatient facilities throughout Austin, Fort Lauderdale and DC.
“The challenges kids and families face today are complex and have the potential to devastate lives and derail futures. It is extremely important to work together to protect the kids in our community. The average age a kid will first try drugs is 13. Studies indicate that people who reach 21 without engaging in destructive behaviors are likely to never do so, which is why we passionately educate about current trends, warning signs, and the long-term impact of destructive behaviors. We believe proactive prevention on the part of kids, families, and communities is the answer to long-term success.”
“Every kid will have the knowledge and confidence to reach their full potential through making positive life choices.”
