Wellness Wednesday: Sleep and improving readiness

Sleep, or lack of it, can influence our health in many ways.  It is sometimes an overlooked factor when members consider improving their health.

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.
