Good physical condition improves wellbeing at work. It also helps you keep your mind clear.
Here are some ways to take good care of yourself:
- Eat healthily and keep your weight in check.
- Exercise in a variety of ways, both aboard the ship and ashore.
- Avoid smoking and excessive use of alcohol.
- Try to get enough sleep.
- If you encounter difficulties or crises in your work or private life, talk about it. Get help if you feel like you need it.
