Having worked with thousands of accountants and bookkeepers over the past few years, I have learned that during tax season “normal working hours” goes out the window, 90% of annual work for clients happens in a two month period, and the pressure on support staff is at an exorbitant level.
There are of course different resources and applications available to help streamline tax accounting but at the end of the day, tax season has and always will be the proverbial “pressure cooker” for the accounting and bookkeeping industry.
However, whether you are young or old, it is so important to take care of yourself Mentally and Physically during the busy seasons of life. Studies have confirmed the dramatic effects stress can have on the body causing many different conditions and a reduced amount of important natural antioxidants that help your body fight cancer such as glutathione.
So take time for yourself during tax season. Take a walk, spend time with family and loved ones, and make sure to look up from time to time.
The following is a great article in the Rogers CPA Review with some suggestions for staying health during tax season.
