Long work hours and limited access to safe places to exercise may make it difficult to find the time and energy to be physically active. While deployed,

  • Try to be active, especially if your role is sedentary.
  • If safe, take short walks around the hotel or incident command post.
  • At a minimum, take short breaks to stand or walk in place.
  • Do not cut into your sleep time to exercise.
