One of my greatest challenges during deployment is often falling asleep. While my husband is abroad, every aspect of my bedtime routine is thrown off, so during his first deployment I developed some pretty terrible sleep habits.
Whether I was staying awake until 1am watching Netflix, or waking up at 3am for a quick skype call, my sleep suffered. I quickly realized that when my sleep suffers, so does everything else I’m dreaming of doing during deployment.
This month our tribe is focused on getting the rest we need to chase after our deployment dreams. Our hope is that this month’s Brave Crate will help you to craft a brand new bedtime routine that will renew you each morning during deployment.
When our body and minds are rested we are able to capitalize on this season and make the most of the moments we have as we prepare for homecoming!
