To Your Health – Build Fitness in 2021

The challenges we faced in 2020 took unprecedented effort and sacrifices from frontline health workers to protect and care for our people, maintain readiness, and support the national COVID-19 response. This new year is an opportunity to build on 2020’s lessons learned to be more resilient as individuals, as communities, as a military, and as a nation. This January, we salute our health and envision new ways to take care of our entire body, mind, and spirit in 2021.

The January toolkit reintroduces the concept of Total Force Fitness, an approach to wellness that incorporates every aspect of the Service Member to optimize performance and readiness. The toolkit highlights how the Total Force Fitness approach can be especially valuable during the pandemic to build and sustain fitness despite the many unique stresses COVID-19 has brought to our lives.

The toolkit also contains information on Winter Safety, especially avoiding brain injuries from winter sports, and graphics you can use for holidays and observances during January.
