The National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being, which was initiated by the American Bar Association, released a report in August 2017 which recommends systematic changes that need to occur in the practice of law. One emphasis of the report is preventative care, as opposed to reactive. Appendix B of the report proposes educational topics for attorneys, including Rejuvenation Periods to Recover from Stress and the importance of physical activity. https://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/aba/images/abanews/ThePathToLawyerWellBeingReportRevFINAL.pdf
Topics within these two areas (rejuvenation and physical activity) will be covered in this presentation about the top unhealthy habits of attorneys, with the goal of encouraging healthy habits that will not only prevent mental health and physical health issues, but will create greater efficiency and satisfaction in the legal profession.
