Tech for Lawyers to Reduce Stress & Improve Wellbeing
Lawyers are some of the busiest professionals in the world, although there is no silver bullet to make long hours and mounting cases disappear, technology can help make it more manageable. Here are three pieces of tech that lawyers can use to reduce stress and improve their wellbeing!
A lot of lawyers are in a constant state of stress, which can lead to anxiety, depression and burnout. Meditation is a practice that is scientifically proven to improve wellbeing and increase mindfulness. With a plethora of guided meditations to suit every mood, Headspace offers step-by-step guided meditations for all levels of experience.
You’ve probably heard of journaling, a method proven to be helpful for managing wellbeing and mental health issues. Aside from providing a secure, portable place to jot down your thoughts, Reflectly uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), a tried and tested technique to help you combat ways of thinking that lead to and exacerbate stress and anxiety.
Lawyers spend much of their day drafting, reviewing and negotiating legal documents - work that can be time-consuming, frustrating and, according to a recent study, hurts employee morale. No more wasting time hunting down definitions and references within your contract. Definely Draft unlocks friction-free legal drafting in MS word and frees up mental space to focus on work that matters.
