There’s something about turning the page on a new year that inspires me! For many of us the new year means a renewed focus on our health and wellness goals, but during deployments finding the motivation to focus on self care through fitness and physical wellness can feel almost impossible. Even though it can be tempting to spend my (limited) spare time cuddled up with Netflix, I know that so much of my emotional and relational health in this season hinges on whether I’m making time to keep my body healthy first.
This month our community is focused on becoming our healthiest, strongest selves while we prepare for homecoming. And guess what? Chances are our spouses are spending their spare time during deployment doing the exact same thing.
With the help of guest experts and the fit-spiration you’ve found in this months box, we’ll create new healthy habits that can carry into our life after homecoming! I hope that everything inside this months Brave Crate helps you start strong in this new year!
