Jarrett Morris


Throughout my life, I have had the pleasure of various experiences. As a law enforcement officer, I have been exposed to multiple critical incidents that led me down the path of having to deal with symptoms of a post-traumatic stress injury (PTSI). Through these experiences, I almost lost my family and went down a dark path.

With the support and guidance of my wonderful wife, I entered therapy and found a new path. I truly believe in wellness for all and that steps can be taken to improve our lives through fitness, nutrition, discipline, and mindset. I will expose you to various ideas, experiences, and real-life stories from my perspective as a first responder.

At dose of ethos, we believe that small steps can lead to big changes, and every day, we can work to become “one degree better” than we were yesterday. This means making intentional choices to improve our physical fitness, mental health, and overall well-being. By taking care of ourselves, we can better serve our families, communities, and the people we are entrusted to protect. So join us on this journey to become “one degree better” every day.

Starting with small and achievable goals can help create momentum and build a strong foundation for long-term success. For example, you can set a goal to read for 30 minutes each day, prepare a healthy meal at least once a week, or commit to a 15-minute workout routine every day. By prioritizing your health in these small ways, you can improve your overall well-being and become better equipped to care for others, whether it be your family, community, or those you serve as a law enforcement officer.

Ready to take your life to the next level? Start by striving to be “one degree better” each day.
