"Eat healthy food", "Get enough sleep"

“Eat healthy food”, “Get enough sleep”

The Department of Homeland Security, a massive agency tasked with guarding borders, enforcing immigration laws, dealing with national emergencies and protecting air travelers, is also finding time to serve as a life coach for its 240,000 employees.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website offers an ongoing collection of maternity lifestyle advice for its workers, which their actual mothers may have already told them. This week, the Department of Homeland Security encouraged all workers to take care of their mental health and suggested that eating right and exercising may help.

“The food you eat has a direct impact on your energy levels and mood,” DHS said. “Choose whole foods that give your body steady energy from healthy nutrition sources and help your brain feel good.”

The publication recommended exercising regularly to reduce stress, avoiding smoking and drinking, reaching out to people for “emotional and social support,” and getting “adequate sleep.”

“Good sleep improves energy, memory, focus, learning ability, and mental and emotional resilience,” the Department of Homeland Security said. “Prioritize good sleep hygiene to improve your sleep each night.”

Last week, the Department of Homeland Security published a blog about how employees identify “good child care” for their families.

“Because child care tends to take up a large portion of the family budget, it is important to review your options,” DHS said. “To help you find child care that works for you, start by assessing your family’s situation,” the agency shares.

The blog suggested employees read more in the Department of Children and Families, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services that “promotes the economic and social well-being of families, children, youth, individuals, and communities through funding, strategic partnerships, mentoring, training, and technical assistance.”

In another development last week, the Department of Homeland Security urged its employees to “strengthen family relationships.”

“These relationships can be a source of comfort, direction, and strength to draw upon in times of stress,” DHS revealed. “Developing and nurturing your family can also give you the boost you need to take on life’s challenges and achieve your goals with confidence and courage.”

The department’s advice on how to achieve this goal included working on listening to family members and “putting phones and other devices away at the dinner table.” The Department of Homeland Security also suggested that you stay active with your family, try a new board game, and laugh together.

The Department of Homeland Security recommended “Find things to do that will make you laugh.” “Choose a funny movie to watch together, read a favorite book, or tell each other jokes.”

In mid-September, DHS recommended a “lower financial check” and suggested using free credit reports, paying off debt, setting financial goals, and starting saving for holiday shopping now.

The agency noted that shopping for gifts can increase spending.

“You may find that your spending will start to increase as the winter break approaches,” the Department of Homeland Security said. “To prepare for that change, fall is the perfect season to review your finances and set a budget.”

A few days earlier, DHS provided advice on how to maintain “positive social welfare habits” for employees.

The Department of Homeland Security advised, “Try to make time for yourself every day.”

“Consider joining a group or club that focuses on a hobby that interests you.”

Consider adopting a pet.
