The Pulse of SchoolCare, December 2020

The EAP brings good tidings to you and your family, all year.

Published December 2, 2020

The holiday season is a favorite for many families.  It often means a time for giving, fun with loved ones and lending a hand to others when they need it.

With that in mind, it’s important to take time to nurture yourself - especially since things may look a bit different this year. Your Cigna Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a great way to practice self-care. Here’s how you (and anyone in your household) can utilize the EAP for peace of mind this season, and all year long: 

Budgeting and financial planning

It’s common to over-indulge financially during the holiday season. Sometimes this can mean adding stress to the rest of the year.  Set yourself up for success by using your EAP program to help with:

  • Spending habits 
  • Budgeting strategies
  • Debt consolidation
  • Managing credit and retirement planning

Physical & mental health support 

It’s easy to forget your wellness routine during the hustle and bustle of balancing work/life responsibilities. The EAP offers various resources to help keep you and your family healthy throughout the year such as:

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Substance use

Career and legal services 

In addition to daily work/life resources, your EAP program offers services for you and your household when new challenges arise, including:

  • Job skills
  • Career growth
  • Networking
  • Family law
  • Real estate law
