This week we have been discussing how running a law office can negatively affect your physical and mental health.
The next question is: What are you going to do about it?
At Great Legal Marketing, we have a ton of specific attorney marketing strategies and lifestyle changes that you can implement to add balance to your life and create a healthier work environment. In addition, here are a few quick tips on how to reduce your everyday work-related stress:
- Recognize warning signs of growing stress. Are you feeling depressed or anxious? Are you suffering from insomnia, eating for comfort, or coping with alcohol? Act on your stress now before you develop serious health problems.
- Strive for balance. Make time for yourself and your family. Make time for exercise and mediation. Chronic stress—stress that is a constant in your life—kills. Create time for relaxation. If you don’t have time, you need to change the way you approach your career.
- Get some sleep. Sleep is a major combatant of stress. But understand that if you don’t have time to sleep or if you are suffering from insomnia, you may be treating a symptom instead of a problem.
- Take responsibility for your stress! You aren’t stressed because a certain client or case is difficult. You aren’t stressed because you need stress to succeed. You are stressed because of the way you are running your law office. You can and should change the way you feel, even if that means changing your law office marketing in a fundamental way.
If you are ready to take control of your stress—and if you get that stress isn’t a necessary evil when running a successful law office—give Great Legal Marketing a call: 888-791-2150.
