Physical Wellbeing

Working on ships can be physically as well as mentally challenging, so it is very important to look after yourself.

Creating healthy habits during your time onboard is an easy way to make small changes that can help you stay safe and well at work.  You can practice these habits at home too, to help build a healthier body and mind for you and your family.  Being in good physical and mental health will also help you respond to unexpected situations and activities more successfully, wherever you are!

Below, you will find links to different elements of the 'Building healthy habits' programme.  Each element aims to help seafarers keep their bodies and minds fit and well.  It consists of helpful information and some useful example activities which anyone can try.

Note - in addition to the 'Building healthy habits - exercise' module below, the 'Building healthy habits - nutrition' is anticipated late Q4 2021.
