AFTA update

                      AFTA Update | Travel Daily 25 August 2020

Calling ALL travel agents, AFTA invites you to take up the challenge!

Today we announce the launch of an innovative, scientifically-based 4-week mental wellbeing and resilience program and you’re invited to join.

The 4-week challenge will commence on Monday 7 September and is for anyone who is interested in enhancing their physical state, mental wellbeing and building mental resilience.

We know that these are tough times. Lives have been turned upside down and significantly impacted by fear, anxiety and panic about coronavirus. Following on from the bushfire disasters over summer, our travel and tourism community has been materially impacted in a number of ways and faces ongoing struggles. Research shows that this has led to significantly higher levels of anxiety, depression, anger, confusion and uncertainty, and financial stress.

In addition to business support, assisting members with mental wellbeing support is a priority of AFTA and the Board of Directors.

So, to assist members AFTA has partnered with the Mind Body Brain Performance Institute to deliver this comprehensive resilience program that will provide members with the necessary mental and emotional support, along with a range of proven practical, actionable strategies and tools to help them in the face of adversity.

Designed by Exercise Physiologist, Nutritionist and Neuroscientist Paul Taylor, the guided program blends resilience education with mindset tools, workouts, recipes, leader-boards, a social fee and a habit-forming Ritual Board to deliver real and long-lasting benefits to those who participate.

AFTA is subsidising the cost for members, and thanks to an anonymous donor and the generosity of Paul Taylor, the program is FREE for those who wish to participate. To learn more visit the AFTA website – click here.

So, grab your colleagues, and register your team for the challenge by completing this form and returning it to Joanne Arancibia at
