If running your practice while protecting your loved ones is making you feel more than just a bit frazzled during the current pandemic, you’re not alone. You’ve always shouldered a lot of responsibility as an attorney. Studies have shown lawyers suffer from depression at a rate 3.6 times higher than that of the other professions.
Why? Two common character traits shared by many attorneys—perfectionism and pessimism—can make you prone to anxiety. When things aren’t going right or as you had planned, your critical lawyer brain pushes you toward pessimism and a belief that there may be no end in sight to your problems.
But you don’t have to keep feeling overwhelmed.
Join our next session to learn the fastest and most powerful way you as a law firm owner can reduce your stress.
