Last month, and in response to the New York Times piece The Lawyer, The Addict, I posted Lawyers Helping Lawyers – Keep it on the front burner.
Earlier this week, the ABA Journal posted Jeena Choo’s thoughts in response to The Lawyer, The Addict: Talking about the elephant in the room – social anxiety. It’s an interesting post on the critical importance of work-life balance, in particular for lawyers who cope with stress-induced issues. I love Jeena’s closing analogy:
- “Finally, remember: ‘Secure your own oxygen mask before assisting others.'”
I’ll have more on this topic soon. Later today, the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being is scheduled to release its report on The Path to Lawyer Well-Being. In the meantime, give Jeena’s blog a read. Or, for a fun-filled stress-reliver, give this week’s #fiveforfriday legal ethics quiz a try!
