LawCare: Top prevention tips for lawyers

There are times as a lawyer when work has to be a priority, however it is still important to maintain positive functionality.

Norton Rose Fulbright director of people and development Rolf Moses, a member of the QLS Wellbeing Working Group, met with Growth Psychology principal psychologist Shari Walsh to look at her top tips on functioning well as a busy lawyer. Her tips include:

  • Monitoring alcohol intake – While aiding relaxation, alcohol can cause problems in the long term.
  • Minimising coffee – Research indicates that caffeine increases adrenaline flow and feelings of stress.
  • Eating healthily – It is proven that eating more fruit and vegetables results in better psychological health.
  • Taking time out – Throughout the day, it is important to take time to think about something else.
  • Sleep – Try implementing strategies to put your body in sleep mode prior to going to bed, to allow your body and mind to switch off.
