4. USE A REFOCUSING ROUTINE TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT NOW. From the Army Resilience Directorate: Stress is entirely normal and finds its way into everyday life. All of the five pillars of wellness—physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and Family—can be affected if an individual fails to compartmentalize stress to the area of life it comes from. Take control by identifying What’s Important Now to be present-minded and task-focused, rather than being consumed by stress and wasting critical energy. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-938908
