Join us December 14 for our 4th Annual Wellness Webinar.

Wellbeing is more than just not being sick. It covers the full spectrum of health: mental, emotional, physical and mental. It means you feel good about your life (at work and home) and look forward to the future. When you experience wellbeing, you are able to operate at peak potential.

Personal wellbeing and professional wellbeing are not separate things. They’re inextricably connected. What happens at work affects what happens at home, and vice versa.

Gauge your wellbeing with the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale, an internationally validated assessment using 14 simple, strength-based questions about your thoughts and feelings over the last two weeks. It takes only a few minutes to complete. Here are three sample questions:

1. I’ve been feeling optimistic about the future
a) None of the time
b) Rarely

c) Some of the time
d) Often
e) All of the time

2. I’ve Been Feeling Useful
a) None of the time
b) Rarely

c) Some of the time
d) Often
e) All of the time

3. I’ve Been Feeling Relaxed
a) None of the time
b) Rarely

c) Some of the time
d) Often
e) All of the time

Take the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Assessment.

How would you rate your general wellbeing? On most days, do you feel healthy, happy and capable? Or hurried, harried and worn out?

Stress in Solo and Small Firms

The bad news: nearly 75 percent of employees in small and midsize law firms have experienced stress, burnout or overwhelm in the past 12 months.

The good news: even so, a whopping 99 percent say they like “at least some aspects of their work.”

That’s according to the inaugural Midsize Law Firm Priorities Report 2023, which surveyed lawyers, paralegals and administrative support professionals at midsized law firms.

“Of the lawyers and paralegals who responded, the greatest sources of their stress are understaffing and client demands,” says LawSites founder Bob Ambrogi about the report. “For administrative support staff, the greatest sources of stress are team or cultural issues and lack of support from management. But even though many of these legal professionals are feeling stressed, they overwhelmingly agree that technology can help their firms adapt and is critical to the satisfaction of their firms’ clients. And, despite the stress, almost all professionals at midsized firms (99.6 percent) say they like at least some aspects of their work.”
