It is a very dense and intensive part of the soldiers life, everyone who has served in the army or been in the military can guarantee that. Not burning yourself out and loose your energy and spirit, you need to focus on your feelings and thoughts as well as the life outside the military. Most soldiers uses every spare minute to recapture oneself and focus on the parallel life everyone has in the role of human being, as well as a soldier.
