  • Five Minutes to Thrive: Recharge Your Battery

    At what point do you look at your battery on your cell phone & think, “I need to plug my phone into the charger?” Is it 60%, 50%, or do you allow it to drain completely before recharging? Admittedly, often times I look at my phone & when I see it is at 49% my immediate thought is “I have got to charge my phone!” Why is that? What is going to happen if my phone goes below 49%? What is going to happen if my phone dies? Nothing really – except that I might miss the latest BookFace stories, or Tok Tik trends.

  • Team Minot 2019: Year in review

    As we move into 2020, we can’t help but to look back on all the amazing things that Team Minot has accomplished this past year. From numerous exercises, countless distinguished visitors, inspections and base improvements, our Airmen came together to complete the mission day in and day out, conducting combat sorties and operations to standing watch at missile fields 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For years Minot Air Force Base has stood and stands as the most strategic Air Force base.

  • Five Minutes to Thrive: BEST SLEEP I EVER GOT

    You may have a friend or have personally suffered from insomnia. At night, many folks lay down in bed and close their eyes, and one million tangentially-related thoughts pop up, one after the other, each screaming for attention.

Some nights, people don’t fall asleep until 3 or 4 a.m. ; other nights some describe feeling like they never slept at all!

  • Five Minutes to Thrive: The Truth About Suicide

    Many of us have known someone who has attempted or completed suicide. This may be in part due to the fact that suicide rates have risen dramatically over the past 30 years, such that it has now become the 2nd-leading cause of death for Americans age 15-34, outranking both homicide and physical illness. And despite increased awareness of this issue, the trend continues.
  • Five Minutes to Thrive: What makes a good leader: Compassion

    This week is the final installment of our series on the key pillars of character required of successful leaders (nobility, humility, courage, compassion), as told by Lt. Gen Steven Kwast, AETC/CC.

Last up: Compassion.
