It’s no mystery, the average attorney works more hours than most professionals in other careers.

“At many large firms, lawyers often bill 40 or 50 hours a week even if they are actually working 60 to 70.”  – The Atlantic

Here are a few tips to stay motivated, productive, and level-headed:


Pace Yourself

You’ve heard the cliché phrase “it’s a marathon, not a sprint”, right? When you feel stuck, simply take a step back and give yourself a moment to mull things over. When you hit a roadblock, chances are that you won’t be able to get past it unless you give yourself a moment to process the issue at hand. Once this technique is mastered it will ultimately improve productivity.


Scope out your Timeline

Scheduling can be the key to unlocking a stress-free workday. If you create a timeline you’ll know your limits and create tangible goals. Therefore, when a new client needs your help, you’ll be realistic with your timeframe in terms of what they can expect.

Take a Walk

In terms of taking the pressure off and gaining a fresh perspective, there’s almost nothing better than to remove yourself from a situation and getting some fresh air. Taking a walk down the block or simply around the perimeter of your office building is not only a good idea, it can be one of the best decisions you’ll make.



Allow Mental Health Days

Yes, we all know it’s hard to take a day off but this could be the very solution to breaking the code in terms of your next work-related dilemma.

“Just like electronic devices need recharging, it’s important to take time to charge your own batteries. A little alone time or an opportunity to practice some self-care can help you perform better.” – Psychology Today
