Strategies for thriving this winter

This will be a challenging winter for many of us. As experts in supporting the financial, physical and mental well-being of Canadians, Canada Life wants to see everyone thrive – and not just survive – the season ahead. 

That’s why we’ve partnered with Mary Ann Baynton and the team at Workplace Strategies for Mental Health to bring you ways you can be proactive about your financial, physical and mental well-being.

Admit anxiety – because we all have it

We’re all dealing with a lot, and it’s natural to feel overwhelmed. Making a plan can help you handle those moments as they come (and they will).

Get some fresh air

We know it’s cold, but grabbing even a few minutes in nature can be a major mood-booster. 

Eat healthy to stay healthy

Nourishing your body can boost your overall sense of wellness too. 

Let’s get active together

Choose any sporting activity you can do safely and join us Dec, 4-6 for 24h Tremblant, a virtual relay race in support of 3 children’s charity foundations.

Find your work/life balance

We’re here to help you navigate this brave new world of work. 

Reinvigorate working from home

Take a fresh approach to something that might be getting pretty old. 
 
Breathe new life into WFH

Talk to your colleagues about your feelings

It can be helpful to talk to your co-workers if you’re transitioning out of working from home.
 
Confidently return to work

Release yourself from ‘working parent’s guilt’

Juggling your work and your kids is a struggle – without a global pandemic. Cut yourself some slack.

Already have a Canada Life benefits plan? You may have access to additional resources.

Give your finances their annual check up

If you’re feeling anxious about your money situation, here are 3 resources that can help you feel a bit more in control – or at least prepared – for the future. 

Don’t leave money on the table

Start saving for tomorrow today. If you have a workplace pension, your employer may match a portion of what you contribute – try to take advantage because it’s additional money to save for your retirement.

See if you’re making the most of your Canada Life workplace plan.
