Drink Less. Live More is about getting more out of life by drinking less alcohol.
research indicates that alcohol plays a major part in many women's lives; from a daily drink to unwind, to drinking with friends and even at children's parties.
Many women we spoke with expressed a desire to reduce their drinking so they can enjoy more of the things that help them be happier, healthier and get more out of life.
Drink Less. Live More is mainly a social media & marketing initiative for now (via our NSLHD Facebook & Instagram pages) and is promoted to women living on the Northern Beaches.
Drink Less. Live More is based around four main messages:
- Drink Less. Live More: Drink less alcohol and embrace the power to change your life for the better.
- One less drink, a healthier you: Improved wellbeing and weight loss awaits you.
- One less drink, more time together: Cherish those quality moments with family and friends.
- One less drink, more to experience: Enjoy the best of life's experience.
