You spend the majority of your time hard at work, but it is also important for you to get quality sleep, engage in physical activity, and eat a well-balanced diet for daily function. The Performance Triad provides information and resources that will help you improve your sleep, activity, and nutrition.
Are you ready to take on the day? Make sure you get quality sleep. Quality sleep is essential for optimal daily function and overall wellbeing. The better the sleep, the greater its benefits, improving your mood, focus, energy, memory, and ability to learn.

Staying active during the day is easier than you think. Look for ways to build activity into your everyday routine. For instance, park further from your building when you arrive for work or do simple exercises (like squats or standing leg curls) at your desk periodically. Getting some daily physical activity is always better than getting none at all.

Healthy living is also achieved by maintaining a nutritious, well-balanced diet. Good nutrition habits help you maintain a healthy weight, prevent certain health conditions (like heart disease and type 2 diabetes), and boost your chances of living a longer life.
