Officers are exposed to 100x more traumatic events than civilians.

Here are 2 effective ways to de-stress and build resilience every day.

 An upper body and lower body mobility routine to help alleviate low back pain.  Mobility is King.  For every hour you spend sitting in the day, add in 5 minutes of mobility to counter its effects.

Self-regulation sets you apart as an officer and helps you avoid burnout. Do you lose patience, feel anxious, are in constant hypervigilance, feel numb out, disconnected, struggle with addictions, or can’t regulate your emotions? These are all side effects of unmanaged stress and unprocessed trauma.

  1. Be Positive
  2. Meditate
  3. Exercise
  4. Unplug
  5. Find ways to de-stress – breathing, music, hobby
