Morale Monday 2

July 30, 2012

Morale – According to Merriam-Webster Morale is; the mental and emotional condition (as of enthusiasm, confidence, or loyalty) of an individual or group with regard to the function or tasks at hand b : a sense of common purpose with respect to a group : esprit de corps : the level of individual psychological well-being based on such factors as a sense of purpose and confidence in the future.

So what does it take to keep morale built up high? What can boost morale when it drops to depressing proportions? What do it take to raise morale in a long term disaster? I think everyone is different to a degree but there are probable similarities according to culture. For instance, I believe music in our culture can change or keep the morale peaked, provided it’s not the blues. Even the blues get some going and can change ones perspective.

All that boils down to the question of what can we do in a crisis situation, long term disaster or what I like to refer as SitX? Are you prepared with music? Do you play an instrument or have someone close by that does? Perhaps you have several hymnals on hand for a just in case situation. I do! Perhaps there is another universal tool for boosting morale you can employ.

Progress is another morale booster. We’ll talk about it next Morale Monday!

The purpose of Morale Monday is to get you thinking about how to build, keep and boost morale in a long term SitX event and Be Prepared.
