Copy of 0078LEARN_CTA3_Blog_images_refresh_Twitter-Blog-Header-1024x512 (14)

Most of us spend at least 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, at work. That’s a huge part of your life spent at work, and no matter how much you love your career in tax, sometimes it can take a toll on your wellbeing. It might be stress form a big project, limited time to spend with your family, or even just boredom from sitting at a desk for most of your day. Work is not all glamorous!

That’s why paying attention to your own wellbeing is so vital. Its importance has been made abundantly clear during 2020, when tax practitioners have been under the pump keeping up with stimulus measures, while dealing with their regular obligations and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in their own lives.

But before this year, you may not have given much thought to wellness, and you may not be clear on how to start, or even what to look for. Check out these three strategies to help you increase your wellbeing at work, and the courses from our Go for Growth platform that will help you master them.


Manage stress with mindfulness techniques



  Why it matters: It would be no surprise if you’re feeling stressed or anxious after the year we’ve just had. For many people, dealing with these feelings isn’t always easy or intuitive. Mindfulness is a meditative technique that helps you concentrate and focus when challenges arise in your daily routine.

How to master it:

Employ effective rest and renewal practices



  Why it matters: You’re at your best when you’re well-rested. A consistent sleep schedule can improve your memory and increase your energy. But with the pressure tax practitioners have been under this year, it might be a while since you’ve gotten a real chance to refresh and renew – and that can take a serious toll of your wellness and work.

How to master it:

Boost your brain and happiness through physical activity



  Why it matters: Ask any gym-goer and they’ll tell you – physical activity can boost your mood. It can also boost your brain’s performance. After a year where we’ve spent more time at home than perhaps ever before, getting back into the habit of physical activity and understanding its immense impact on our wellbeing is vital.
