Wellness

Managing mental wellbeing is essential if we are to foster a more productive workplace and better work environment.

In this section we explore how Chartered Accountants are bringing about positive change such as mental health initiatives.

Promoting Mental Health for Chartered Accountants

Wellness is a modern word with ancient roots. The key tenets of wellness as both preventive and holistic can be traced back to ancient civilizations.

Trying to keep fit and healthy is something many of us include in our daily routines. Visiting the gym, a balanced diet and playing sports is now commonplace for many professionals. But how many of us give our mental fitness the same attention as we give our physical fitness?

To help ensure that you are successful it is more important than ever to keep focused on personal wellness and mental wellbeing.  In order to help you navigate an uncertain world we have collated a range of great online resources from our member institutes that will help you to overcome the personal and professional challenges that face us daily.

Struggling to Switch off

Struggling to Switch off?

The Five Ways to Wellbeing was developed by the New Economics Foundation in 2008, where their project collated research from around the world on proven actions that can help us feel good.

Wellbeing is a term that has gained popularity in recent years but in its simplest form it is a state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. In a broader sense, it’s how satisfied you are with life, your sense of purpose, and how in control you feel.

Refocusing your efforts

During exam season, it can be a struggle to build and maintain momentum in the final weeks of preparation for the big exams. Stress levels can be at an all-time high and while some stress can help keep you motivated and focused, too much can be unhelpful.

Here we look at tactics and strategies to help you focus your efforts and build study resilience in the weeks ahead.

Forging strong social connections

Strong social connections not only impact our mental health but our physical health too. In today’s world, we lead increasingly busy lives and often our relationships can sadly fall by the wayside. Feeling socially connected is more important than ever, especially after a long period where our social interactions are restricted, and our close circle reduced.

Back to the office- Adapting to change

Change is something we all deal with differently – some embrace it, some resist it, but we all have to figure out how to deal with change as best we can.

Letting go of what you can’t control

We will all inevitably face challenges in life. However, this is not where our struggles lie. Our struggles lie in our reaction to these challenges, and our illusion that we can control them. This webinar focuses on building self-awareness and the problems we face when we try to control things that are outside of our control.
