Resilience: Total Force Fitness
What does it mean to be resilient? One popular definition of resilience is the ability to withstand, adapt, recover and/or grow in the face of challenges and demands. Becoming resilient requires a comprehensive approach that focuses on the mind, body and spirit working together. A critical component of resilience is using a strength-based approach for learning and growing as an individual, a family and as part of the broader military community. The information and resources provided below will help you and your family become more resilient and find new ways to master the many challenges you face every day.
Are you a woman in the military who is interested in gaining the skills necessary to be a resilient leader? A great way to do so is to attend the summit, “Building Resilience in Women Leaders,” Thursday, March 27, 2014, in Arlington, VA. Open to all aspiring military women leaders from across the Department of Defense, this summit will help you understand resilience, define what it means to you, and set goals related to leadership and personal advancement in the military. In addition, the summit will provide you an opportunity to cultivate mentorships and build networks with other women leaders in the military.
If stress levels are high during a military transition, you might also be looking for "comfort" with foods loaded with sugar, salt or fat. Since such foods can rob you and your family of energy, a balanced mood and good health - or cause excessive weight gain - resolve to stick with the basic requirements for healthy eating, especially when times are more stressful.
