Relationships as an Attorney

Relationships as an Attorney


Maintaining relationships as an attorney can be tricky. The demands of a working schedule, meetings, travel, and company requirements can cause strain on the quality and quantity of time you have with a partner, family, or friends! Where is the balance? Here are some tips on how to foster the relationships that matter most to you in the midst of a high demand career.

  1. Unplug. Take time to spend quality time that is uninterrupted by the business of work, electronics, or outside influences. Take time to spend time and show the people who matter that they are a true priority to you.
  2. Be Intentional. Making plans is one thing, but what would it be like to make plans and keep them? Making clear, intentional, scheduled commitments is powerful! Date night once a week? Family dinner three times a week? Happy hour once every other week? You have the benefit of fostering the relationships in your life as it works for your schedule!
  3. Be in the moment.What would our lives be like if we decided to hold ourselves accountable for our own relationships and interactions. “How did I make a valuable connection with a loved one today?” Take time to reflect, practice gratitude, and make meaningful connections.

Taking time to make relationships a priority can be challenging with seemingly no instant gratification. Take time to reflect on how fostering relationships can lead to a long-term reward that will benefit you in the future!

Need help understanding why relationships are so powerful for our support network? Outpatient therapy can help! In therapy you can process current relationships, past relationships, and hopes for future relationships in your life. Here are some great resources!

Being a Mother with a Demanding Job

Being a Mother with a Demanding Job


Finding a work-life balance as an attorney can be extremely difficult. Add being a mother into the mix, and it can feel almost impossible! Many moms feel working mom guilt – “I’m a bad mother because I am choosing a career over my child.” Is this true? No! Here are some truths to hold onto when the mom guilt digs in.

  • Create a support network. How hard would it be if there was no support, connection, or strength in numbers to find help in times of need? Surround yourself with strong women who can encourage you and build you up in a society that can break women down.
  • Don’t be afraid to talk about the mom guilt. It is hard as a parent in today’s society to feel the pressure of being a “perfect” mother. We need to take time to feel okay talking about the hard things – sometimes being good enough IS good enough.
  • Take advantage of playing. Playing is so good for our heart and soul. It can bring a sense of renewal to not only ourselves, but it can create a strong bond and attachment with your child(ren). Give them the reigns to teach you something new about yourself!
  • Give yourself permission. It is okay to leave work early to go to the choir concert or the baseball game. Perform at your high level, inform the people who are  in the need to know roles, and allow yourself the space to do what you need.
  • Focus on why you love your family. Mindfulness is a big buzzword recently, and it is for good reason that we should listen to it. Take time in your day to reflect and be grateful for the family you have – remind yourself why you love them AND why you love working. These things CAN coexist!
    1. Another part of this could also be give yourself permission to miss the things that society pressures you to accomplish. It is okay that you can’t sign up to read a book at school every time they need a volunteer! Talk with your child(ren) about the limitations and model emotional health!

The struggles of being a working mother in a high demand job can be overwhelming. If it is becoming overwhelming for you – it is a great idea to seek out help! Short-term outpatient therapy can help with gaining insight, learning coping skills, and helping with managing the guilt that comes with being a working mother.

Work-Life Balance as an Attorney

Work-Life Balance as an Attorney


We are aware that mental illness does not discriminate based on status, race, gender, or occupation. Attorneys have a wonderful opportunity to help those in need, however they also assume a great deal of responsibility in their caseload demands.  What does this lead to? Many times it can lead to Anxiety, Depression, or other stressors that can make balancing personal life with occupational life demands.

What are some ways to help find the balance? Here are some tips that could be helpful if you are struggling to find middle ground in a world of extremes.

  • Take Five Minutes. What would it be like to take five minutes three times a day to reflect on gratitude and peace? Look for things that you are grateful for in the moment – no matter how big or small they may be. Take this time to unplug as well!
  • Clear Your Mind. Meditation is a powerful tool that can help with finding a balance and inner peace. Here are a few great apps that you can use as resources: Headspace; Calm; Balance; Stop, Breathe, Relax; and Insight Timer.
  • Eating and Sleeping ARE a Priority! Our dietary habits and sleep hygiene can impact every other aspect of our lives. Make sure you are eating a healthy and balanced diet and getting the recommended amount of sleep you require!
  • Schedule Time for Work. It is easy to take work home with use  in any job! It is important to schedule time when you take work home. Make sure you set an alarm or timer to help you monitor spending time with friends, family, or hobbies on weekends.
  • Let go of Perfection. It can be hard to remember that perfect is not real. Make time to engage in some self compassion and recognize growth that can come out of messy situations!

It is easy to get caught up in a world of high demand and expectations. Make sure you save some space for your well-being.
