Summary

Wellbeing is important to all of us and is vital to the health and performance of any person. The term 'not just a job' could not be more accurate than when describing life in the military. Military life brings with it layers of challenges. Whilst highly rewarding, the military member will juggle extraordinary and often competing priorities. An individual will balance requirements for physical fitness, training and education schedules, long stints away from home, frequent relocations, and dedication to a service beyond reproach, just to name a few. This doesn't include the 'other' serving members - their family, without whom service would be less effective. The Runway focus is on reputable professional and academic sources that provide practical and authoritative guidance that can help motivate and inform your decision to reflect often, plan the changes necessary, and ultimately improve your physical, mental, and social wellbeing.
