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.
