Among the chaos that is COVID-19, the practice of law has shifted from a professional office environment to at-home counseling. The change in the legal industry undoubtedly brings tension and uncertainty as lawyers grapple with maintaining a sense of normalcy during a global pandemic. When faced with new challenges resulting from the crisis mitigation efforts, we must continuously adapt to maintain our physical and mental health in highly limited circumstances.
While we’re hunkered down at home and attempting to manage our work and care for our families, now, more than ever, is the time that we must consider the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I appreciate that my company, Legal Innovators, places high importance on mental health and has shared resources and best practices for a positive state of wellbeing.
In this post, I'll share my perspective as a junior lawyer including the things that have worked well for me in terms of managing stress during these unprecedented times as well as several of my favorite resources and best practices.
