Wellness Wednesday: Healthy Lifestyle – Return on Investment for the organization

We do preventive maintenance on our ships to ensure they are ready when called to action, but sometimes we fail to provide maintenance on our most valuable asset – our people. No one knows when the next natural disaster or emergency will happen which will test the resiliency of our members. We do know that providing an atmosphere of a healthy lifestyle will improve morale, improve the health of our members, and help prepare them to meet all challenges.

Can a lousy lunch affect your afternoon performance on the job? Could that great steak dinner make or break your sleep patterns? Could that lack of sleep and heavy dinner from the night before affect your mission readiness? The answer is, yes.
