Just like your physical health may be challenged by the temptation to skip a workout, your emotional health may be challenged by the stress you face on a daily basis. As if regular, everyday stress isn't enough, you've probably faced additional stressors characteristic to military life, like deployments or frequent moves. To be able to face these challenges head on, you need to be both physically and emotionally healthy, and that means taking care of yourself.
