As summer approaches its final months, it’s a great time to revisit any well-being goals you might have set for yourself back in January. Even if you didn’t make resolutions, it’s still a good time to take inventory of how you’re doing and how you’re feeling.

In the sections below, you’ll find resources to help support your mental, physical, and financial well-being journey. Explore this information for inspiration to keep you motivated and encouraged as the year draws to a close.

Mental well-being

Taking care of your mental health should be a top priority, as it forms a foundation for your overall well-being. Whether your goal was to find a therapist or simply build your emotional resilience and coping skills, we offer mental health support options tailored to your unique needs and everyday life.

For all colleagues:

  • General learning and personalized help: Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP), provides confidential guidance and support to help you navigate through life’s challenges. They are there to lean on in times of need by offering a listening ear, and confidential advice during one-on-one counselling sessions with trained experts. The EAP also goes beyond being a support system during difficult times. It offers various programs to help you accomplish your mental health objectives. You can utilize resources like Cigna's Managing Stress Toolkit, which provides mindfulness exercises and stress management techniques. In addition, the EAP website offers educational materials to further support your mental health journey. If your goal was to simply get in touch with a provider, the EAP can also help you find a mental health professional that meets your needs. Get started by visiting myCigna.com or call 1-877-622-4327.

Physical well-being

In the midst of busy schedules and packed days, taking care of your physical health can get lost in the shuffle of everyday life. Some of us may push off doctor’s appointments due to busy schedules or avoid exercise entirely because of pain. Whatever it may be that’s impeding you from feeling and moving your best, we offer solutions to help you overcome challenges and achieve your personal health goals.

For colleagues enrolled in an AXA XL medical plan:
