Lawyers Take Care: Well-Being During Covid-19

Due to Covid-19 most lawyers are working remotely–and many are feeling a bit isolated.

Some lawyers report an inability to concentrate on their work for any length of time; others complain that they miss interacting with their colleagues at the office, in court, and at Bar activities and events.

Enter, Lawyer Well-Being Week, sponsored by the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being and many partner organizations. Lawyer Well-Being Week takes place May 4-8, kicking off May, which is National Mental Health Month.

Click on the link above to access all the resources and tips for the week, including worksheets and activities for downloading and using throughout the year. Share these resources with colleagues who may appreciate a reminder to focus on wellness during this unusual time.

In addition, here is a short podcast I recorded with Bree Buchanan, Co-Founder of the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being and Co-Author of its groundbreaking 2017 Report. Bree was formerly the director of the Texas Lawyer’s Assistance Program (TLAP)* for the State Bar of Texas, and now is a consultant with Krill Strategies in Austin.

Be well.
