The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as “the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead of a state of holistic health.” Wellness is multidimensional, encompassing social, spiritual, mental/emotional, and physical aspects, among others. Wellness is a lifelong journey – to seek balance amid the ever-changing curveballs life throws at us.
Families, workplaces, and communities benefit when their members are actively seeking wellness. Are you proactively adopting lifestyles, behaviors, and practices that help you thrive personally and professionally? Take a self-assessment to gauge your current level of wellness.
Check out TMA’s wide variety of CME courses on issues such as work-life integration, moral distress, boundary setting, physician suicide, and other aspects of self-care and wellness.
TMA members can access CME courses at no cost, compliments of TMA Insurance Trust.

TMA’s Committee on Physician Health and Wellness has produced brochures, available for download, to help physicians navigate their personal wellness and support colleagues on the journey.
