Mindfulness Programs for Lawyers and Law Firms
Recent studies show that taking time to step away from one’s desk, taking a few mindful breaths, or meditating can help counteract decision fatigue, stress, lagging motivation, and procrastination.
That's where we come in.
“I think that a large basis for the prevalence of depression and substance abuse in the legal industry is self-selecting. Lawyers tend to be driven perfectionists, which is often why they entered such a difficult profession. The demands of clients and supervising attorneys tend to exacerbate what in most instances is a pre-existing issue.”
