Guard Your Health helps Soldiers achieve New Year’s resolutions

By Courtesy Story

ARLINGTON, Va. - Guard Your Health, a health promotion campaign sponsored by the Army National Guard Office of the Chief Surgeon, provides an online platform for Guard Soldiers and their families to access health and medical readiness information.

This month, many of the Army National Guard's 360,000 drilling and activated Soldiers made New Year's resolutions to create long-term healthy habits and improve their readiness.

However, with all of the responsibilities Guard members juggle as civilians and Soldiers, sometimes New Year's resolutions are tough to achieve.

That's where Guard Your Health comes in - it's packed with tools, information and inspiration to help make total force fitness-not to mention New Year's Resolutions-a reality for Army National Guard Soldiers and their families.

You can access the website anytime, anywhere. Check out the campaign today at to learn more about topics like nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress, dental health, readiness, and family resilience.

Guard Your Health also contains one-of-a-kind resources including subject matter experts who can answer general health questions, personal stories from fellow Guard Soldiers who have overcome barriers to achieve healthier lives, discussion boards where Soldiers can share health tips and favorite recipes, and custom health tools like an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) Calculator to help Soldiers manage their health, track their fitness, and prevent illness and injury.

If you're a Guard Soldier or family member, visit Guard Your Health today to help maintain your health and medical readiness year-round.
