Spring: The Perfect Time to Grow Resilience


Spring is a time for rebirth, rejuvenation, and refocusing. Many people “spring clean” to get rid of unwanted items and energy from their home or barracks, but did you know that you can also do the same for your body and spirit?

Here are some tips to “spring clean” your spirit and enhance your personal readiness:

  • Physical – as the mercury rises, so should your time outside
  • Emotional – cultivate optimism, even on gloomy days. It doesn’t rain forever
  • Social – unearth your people skills and plant some new relationships
  • Spiritual – dust off the beliefs and values that bring purpose to your life
  • Family – nurture your loved ones and watch them bloom

There is no better feeling than being in a clean, clutter-free environment, but reviving and refocusing your mind and body is a veryclose second.
