We recognize that the ability to find sustainable employment and keep motivated is only after basic life skills are formed. The ability to maintain physical fitness is well known to improve sleep patterns, affect concentration on the job, and form the basis of a healthy daily routine. A good understanding of nutrition, fitness, and taking care of yourself is often first stage to becoming employable.
