Burnout is serious.
It’s also, unfortunately, very common in the legal field. As lawyers, we’re always running around to client meetings, facing serious and heartbreaking issues, and oftentimes bringing that home with us. There’s an expectation that we’re always working. This is only amplified when we own our own law firms.
This is why it is important to learn tactics to manage stress and prioritize rest. If you’re feeling burnt out, we highly recommend that you take it seriously, talk to a professional about it, and implement any necessary changes. Today’s episode is a good place to start.

- Schedule time on your calendar to brainstorm things that you can delegate, even if you don’t have anyone to delegate to yet.
- Decide to raise your rates. Your new clients don’t know the difference.
- Find one thing that you can do regularly that you enjoy. Mine is after dinner walks with my kids. It doesn’t have to be daily, though! It can be a weekly book club or something similar. However, the more consistent you are, the better.
