Self Care for Lawyers

There’s no time like the present to be sure you’re taking care of yourself!

“Self care” typically trends on social media with pictures of bubble baths, face masks, and matching robe and slipper combos. All of which can be relaxing, but not always conducive for people who work 40+ hours a week and/or own their own business. So how can you also indulge in self-care as a lawyer?

  1. Boundaries. 

Also a bit of a buzzword in some circles, but setting realistic boundaries for yourself is important to avoiding burnout. An 8-hour workday can easily turn into a 10+hour workday, especially since most of us are working from home. And while the first few times of working longer days doesn’t feel like it has an effect on you, it may be affecting you down the road. Making a promise to yourself to let your work extend into your down time is important for your mental health. Also, this can help your productivity as well if you’re well-rested. 

LawyerLine makes it easy for our clients to not deal with their phone calls after hours or at all, by providing 24/7 coverage. Let our representatives handle your calls and you enjoy one less task to deal with!

  1. Limits

All of us are only human – even if we feel like a superhero sometimes! And while burning the midnight oil and waking up at 5am, or maintaining energy with coffee and energy drinks, is okay once and a while, keeping up with that level of performance every day is draining. Dare I say, that it would be impossible as well! It’s not feasible to say yes to every single case, order, project, task that may come your way – and it’s okay to say no! After all, it is your practice!

LawyerLine’s well-trained staff is ready to help your practice as much as you’ll let us! Potential client intake, scheduling appointments, processing payment, translation services, outbound calls – utilizing our multi talented team to handle things that you don’t have to not only gives you more time to dedicate to what matters, but it also gives you the freedom and flexibility to maintain the growth of your clientele. 

  1. Vacation

What’s the point of working hard every single week of the year?! Summertime is famous for vacations for a reason – the warm sun and longer days are a recipe for success for planning a vacation! Be sure to take time with your loved ones (including friends, pets, and yourself!) to take a break from your everyday routine. 

And, you guessed it – LawyerLine makes going on vacation easy! With 24/7 handling of your phones, our representatives can take care of letting your clients know that you’ll call them back after your well-deserved vacation, and can schedule new client consultations for when you return!

Utilizing LawyerLine is pivotal to taking care of yourself, and your law practice.
