Good afternoon, fellow patriots. Here's to a weekend of punching nazis and shooting commies!
To end the weekend right, I wanted to share some life lessons from the military with you to help improve your well-being. We need us patriots to last longer!
4. Look On Point, Always
As the old adage goes, when you look the part, you act the part. How you appear effects how you feel as well as how others perceive you.
When it comes to the military, their appearance is of upmost importance. When on the battlefield, an organized, armored soldier is much more threatening than a disorganized one.
Now I'm not saying to look lethal all the time, but to take care of your appearance can really improve the way others view you as well as how you view yourself.
3. You Are What You Consume
Proper nutrition is key. As Napolean said, an army marches on its stomach.
During training, men will eat more than they ever have and still lose weight. Learning how to fuel your body instead of satisfy cravings is an important pillar of military training and lifestyle.
Incorporating this mindset into your everyday life can have profoundly positive physical and mental effects.
2. Learn to Work as a Team
No man is an island, and this rings especially true in the military. Having your friend's back and them having yours can be the difference between life and death.
Carrying this over to civilian life, learning to work as a team can increase efficiency at work and actually make things easier for the individual parts of the team.
Although it is near impossible to reach the comradely of the military, it is still important to try.
No one values sleep more than servicemen and women, and no one understands and feels the effects more than they do as well.
Sleep deprivation effects performance in a very negative way; memory loss, confusion, and chronic exhaustion are just a few symptoms of lack of sleep.
So take advantage of your civilian ability to get quality sleep and reap the benefits. It is also known that lack of sleep if the #1 factor in speeding up the aging process.
The lessons we can learn from the military is endless and timeless, these are just some of the major ones I came up with off the top of my head.
What other life lessons should I have included? Let me know in the comments!
